Winning The Needed Change: Saving our Planet Earth represents the outcome of long deliberations and systematic exchanges among the several members of a truly global team. It reflects a diversity of viewpoints and makes no claim to finality. However, it represents an effort to carry the debate, which started with the establishment of the International Institute of Administrative Sciences (IIAS), or arguably much earlier, one step further, onto the planetary level. It begins with an acknowledgement of the overarching role of the human factor in global governance and the critical importance of public service professionalism. It is hopefully only the first and one of many phases in the long, arduous process and worldwide debate, which is needed to elevate public service professionalism to a higher, global level. Cross-culturally conceived and written in three languages, this addition to the series of the IIAS on global governance issues is a must for any student or scholar of the subject, as well as a needed addition to university libraries and centers of research.

En los países de América Latina y el Caribe la pequeña y mediana industria alimentaria desempeña una función de gran importancia al generar un considerable número de empleos que se traducen en beneficios económicos para la población de escasos recursos. Dicha industria proporciona productos esenciales que componen la canasta alimenticia básica; representa una alternativa a la migración de la población a las ciudades; utiliza provechosamente la cultura local, y valoriza el trabajo femenino. Debido la naturaleza de sus actividades, las pequeñas y medianas industrias alimentarias hacen un uso intensivo de la energía, especialmente de leña y de otros biocombustibles. Sin embargo, su escasa competitividad constituye un problema, sobre todo en momentos en que en muchos lugares del mundo ocurren importantes cambios económicos y sociales. Para contribuir a encontrar soluciones a este problema y diseñar propuestas de desarrollo, la Dirección de Sistemas de Apoyo a la Agricultura de la FAO, conjuntamente con el Centro de Investigaciones en Ecosistemas de la Universidad Autónoma de México y el Grupo Interdisciplinario de Tecnología Rural Aplicada A.C. de México, organizaron del 25 al 28 de noviembre de 2002 en Pátzcuaro, Michoacán (México), una Reunión de Expertos sobre calidad y competitividad de la industria alimentaria rural en América Latina y el Caribe. Las actividades de la Reunión de Expertos tuvieron por objeto analizar cabalmente la situación actual y los problemas de la pequeña industria alimentaria. Este análisis ayudará al mejoramiento de las pequeñas y medianas industrias alimentarias regionales mediante una adecuada gestión de las tecnologías para el empleo eficiente de la leña como combustible, incluyendo aspectos técnicos, económicos y sociales.

For several years the concept of "virtual client" or "virtual customer" has been part of the world of libraries and information services. This publication contains the proceedings of a satellite meeting on this topic, organized by the Management and Marketing Section of IFLA and held in Sao Paulo, Brazil in August 2004. It contains papers from more general points of views such as the democratization of access to digital information to more specific questions such as virtual libraries and new services, not forgetting user and librarian education, web site design, more specialized information, etc. The readers of these proceedings will find along these pages a very stimulating content which will guide them towards better services for virtual clients. Papers are presented in the original language of their presentation (Portuguese, French, Spanish and English) with summaries in these four languages.

La ciencia conductual, la ciencia cognitiva y la neurociencia están realizando grandes progresos en la comprensión de los cambios cognitivos que se producen durante el proceso de envejecimiento. Especialistas de distintos campos, tales como la psicología conductual y cognitiva y las neurociencias, que están investigando en un número de áreas diferentes, fueron invitados a participar en este volumen. Estas áreas incluyen el estudio de los mecanismos básicos que explican el declive cognitivo asociado a la edad, los procesos mentales (percepción, atención, memoria, razonamiento y lenguaje), los cambios neurológicos que ocurren a nivel molecular y celular que influyen en el funcionamiento mental durante el ciclo vital, los cambios cerebrales y conductuales asociados a la edad que se producen en las enfermedades neurodegenerativas, tales como la enfermedad de Alzheimer, métodos experimentales y clínicos e intervenciones sociales.
