The purpose of this book is to describe and evaluate the Northern Arizona University (NAU) pilot program for delivering training and continuing-education programs to students at homes and hospitality establishments using a combination of Internet and satellite technologies. The NAU School of Hotel and Restaurant Management (SHRM) launched the pilot program in the spring of 2000 to one hotel and three homes. The evaluation findings indicate that the SHRM pilot program is capable of providing remote hospitality employees with accessible, flexible, affordable, and appropriate educational opportunities for reaching personal and professional goals. The evaluation findings also show that developments in satellite communications offer new possibilities for streamlining and improving the instructional delivery system. Recommendations are made for professionals who intend to implement similar instructional delivery systems to meet the demand for real-time training programs that can be delivered worldwide to a geographically dispersed workforce.

In a country with a rapid population growth rate and huge inflow of tourists such as was the case with Zambia, in the year 2007, environmental issues needed to be checked and monitored closely. One such environmental issue that needed attention at the time of writing in 2007 was Waste Management. The purpose of this study, therefore, was to explore the role of Environmental Education (EE) in Waste Management for the Zambian Hospitality Industry of Lusaka urban. The study revealed that institutions responsible for the provision of EE to the hospitality industry had no specific or designed waste management EE curriculum for the hospitality industry. Instead, they offered a general sensitization program to the entire community, which did not meet the EE requirements of the hospitality industry. As a result of such generality, most of the hotel/lodge staff knew very little or nothing at all about professional issues of waste management. Hence, the poor waste management practices being practiced by the hospitality industry could be attributed partly to the lack of an EE policy in the industry.

The NATO Advanced Research Workshop, "Decision Support for Natural Disasters and Intentional Threats to Water Security" was the result of close collaboration between environmental, security, water resource, and health officials in the United States and Croatia. The premise of the Workshop is that multiple, disparate threats to water security exist, and that shared decision support structures provide effective means for avoiding and responding to potential or actual situations. The Workshop was co-directed by Professors Tissa Illangasekare of the Colorado School of Mines, and Dragutin Geres of Hrvatske vode. The Workshop was organized into a series of case studies, presentation of management tools, or a combination of the two. Presentations were further organized as to (1) Natural Occurrences, (2) Anthropogenic Causes, and (3) Decision Support Tools. Delegates from eleven countries assembled to explore these topics at the Hotel Dubrovnik President in Dubrovnik from April 22-25, 2007. A total of thirty delegates from NATO, Partner, Mediterranean Dialog, or other countries were in attendance. The final program included technical sessions using a presentation and dialog format, a field trip, and networking sessions. There were twenty five technical presentations supported by seventeen formal papers (many updated in late-2008 and 2009), and these form the basis for these proceedings. xi ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The co-directors and organizers of this Advanced Research Workshop a- nowledge the NATO Science Programme for major financial support and for providing detailed guidance on how best to organize and execute a meeting of this nature.
