The study analyzed the effects of climate change and explores prevailing adaptation strategies taken by haor famers at locale level. This study aims to document the impact of climate on the livelihood and food security of Haor farmers and identify relevant forces and factors contributing to it and identify appropriate adaptation policies and programs that support the most vulnerable and food insecure communities affecting the lives and livelihoods of Haor area Primary data were collected through field visit, questionnaire survey, FGD and KII. A purposive random sampling method was applied for selecting 60 from different households in 8 villages located in and around Diggaputa Haor at Mohonganj Upazilla. Data has been presented mostly in the tabular form, some statistical measures like average, percentage, ratios, and regression analysis calculated to arrive at expected findings. Home stead area is the highest (12.5%) in Etniyakhalipur compared to others areas. Cultivated land and pond area is highest around 66.7% and 28.9% in Pabui. Also, the average farm size and annual income of Pabui respondent is greater than other respondents which is 143.3 decimal &amp; 93% from agricultural crop production. Other respondents are affected by climatic hazards like flood plains, cyclones, drought etc. That’s why, most of the respondents are dependent on various sources like livestock and poultry, fisheries, business, labour and others. It has been observed from interview data that flood (100%) is the major factor affecting agricultural productivities in the haor area whereas drought, cyclone and others is 80%, 80% and60% respectively. Also, perception of food consumption and food insecurity in terms of seasonal deficit especially dry lean periods is 100%. After natural disaster, the access of food is 100% and pure drinking water from tube-well (100%), Pond water (40%), Rain water (80%) which causes various kinds of water borne disease. According to case study, it has been observed that natural disasters have negative effects on their family income where around 60% said during the last five years natural disasters occurred 3 -5 times around the years. Compare to degree of suffering natural disasters, it has found that the degree of suffering before natural disaster in extreme and moderate level was 80% and 20% respectively and now the degree of suffering after natural disaster is extreme level (100%) which proves that climate change affects Haor people’s livelihoods. In the perception level of flood as a phenomenon of climate change of the selected communities is 100% which cause 20% respondents to change in crop calendar and 40% population to switching their job.

Bank-level stress tests should be incorporated into the bank's risk management system and include the views of all relevant bank employees with their expert judgments. Through effective, soundness and transparent stress testing (which became one of the regulatory requirements in the jurisdiction of each central bank), banks preventively take insight into the key values of its business in case of emergence of unpredictable and extraordinary events. Such stress testing considers creation of adequate infrastructure in banks and upon the efficiency level of established stress testing program depend the realization of main organizational objectives. Regular conducting of stress testing in predefined frequency as well as its realization within internal capital adequacy assessment process and recovery plan processes in banks lead to effective risk management. In operational terms, the key role for stress testing depends upon risk function and its organization in the bank. Also, stress testing outcomes could lead to taking further actions in case of emergency in order to provide continuous and sustainable business on long run.</em></p> Vladimir Mirković, Jelena Lukić Nikolić, Branislav Dudić Copyright (c) 2023 Thu, 28 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0000 THE RESILIENCE OF FAMILY FIRMS: CASE STUDY OF SMUCKER’S AND ITS HISTORY OF INNOV ATION AND FAMILY VALUES <p><em>This paper is aimed to look at the astonishing growth of the J.M. Smucker Company. It takes a look at the beginning that shows how Jerome Monroe Smucker transformed his family recipe into a multibillion-dollar company with a wide arrange of products. Specifically, this paper takes a look at the foundation of the company and how the core values that were set forth in the very beginning, still hold true to this day. While many companies seem to have a revolving door of employees and management, the Smucker’s have been operating this business from the beginning. The company is their family and their unique management style makes their employees feel the same way. While they do produce quality products and goods, it is truly believed that it is the core values and the people that really push the overall growth of the company and increase its resilience. The analysis shows that family-run businesses may employ family social capital in retrospective and prospective ways. A retrospective approach involves targeted and conservative uses of family social capital, wherein the aim is to maintain organizational functioning and return to “business as usual”. In contrast, a prospective approach employs these resources in a more strategic and flexible way to adapt to a “new” future.</em></p> Scott Nealon Copyright (c) 2023 Thu, 28 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0000 EMPLOYEE RESILIENCE AND LEADERSHIP STYLES <p><em>Employee resilience and leadership styles are closely interconnected in the workplace.

In today’s workforce, there are multiple generations all competing for the same position. Baby boomers, Gen Xers, and millennials each have their own values. Baby boomers are seen as experienced workaholics that won’t retire, leaving no room for other generations to advance in their careers. Gen Xers are seen as great managers without a demanding presence. These older generations are seen as the “sandwich-generation” and are financially burdened with being responsible for both their children, and their parents. Millennials are seen as tech-savvy employees that don’t want to work on a team. Despite these challenges, managers can make everyone feel included by avoiding stereotypes, communicating effectively, and respecting boundaries.</em></p> Michelle Dorio Copyright (c) 2023 Thu, 28 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0000 TOWARDS THE RESILIENT REGION: SIGNIFICANCE AND APPROACH IN REGIONAL POLICY PLANNING AND REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE PROCESS OF SERBIA ACCESS TO THE EUROPEAN UNION <p><em>The authors analyse the importance and approach in regional policy planning and regional development in the process of Serbia's accession to the European Union, through regional policy planning at the national level, the need to open Chapter 22, which is dedicated to regional policy and the management of structural funds.
