  1. 1. The effect of environmental policies on CO2 emissions - using the environmental policy stringency index

    Kandidat-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för nationalekonomi med statistik

    Författare :Elin Alexandersson; [2020-09-15]
    Nyckelord :Environmental policy stringency index; CO₂ emissions; panel data; fixed effects;

    Sammanfattning : The carbon concentration in the air has increased by 50 percent since pre-industrial times and continues to increase every year. Climate change is, therefore, a significant challenge today. LÄS MER

  2. 2. EUROPAS KLIMAT - Vad har reducerat koldioxidutsläppen?

    Kandidat-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Författare :Miguel Madureira Palm; [2020-08-18]
    Nyckelord :Klimatförändringar; dekomponering; Kaya-identiteten; energiintensitet; koldioxidfaktor; Europa; Climate change; decomposition; Kaya-identity; energy intensity; carbon factor; Europe;

    Sammanfattning : Scientists, politicians and media are increasingly discussing the topic of climate change. Measures such as the Paris Agreement have been taken to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, specially CO2-emissions, in order to prevent the devastating effects of climate change. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Environmental Kuznets Curve in Sweden - A regression analysis of the relationship between CO2 emissions and economic growth in Sweden during the years of 1960-2018

    Kandidat-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för nationalekonomi med statistik

    Författare :Daniel Forsström; Oscar Johansson; [2020-07-06]
    Nyckelord :Environmental Kuznets Curve; EKC; CO2 emissions in Sweden;

    Sammanfattning : The Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) is a theory suggesting the existence of an inverted U-shaped relationshipbetween emissions and economic growth. In today’s world of environmental awareness, it is an interesting topicsince it suggests that when economic growth reaches a certain point, pollution actually starts decreasing as economicwelfare increases.

  4. 4. Modelling gross primary production in semi-arid regions: effects on carbon uptake of intensive agriculture in southern Kenya

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Författare :Malin Ahlbäck; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; GPP; Africa; Kenya; Land cover changes; Cropland; Remote sensing; Sentinel-2; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Background and aim: Gross primary production (GPP) is the largest global carbon (C) flux and an important component for counteracting anthropogenic CO2 emissions, understanding vegetation dynamics, and sustaining universal human standards. Africa plays a prominent role in the global C cycle, though our understanding of GPP dynamics is largely hampered by a paucity of ground-based observations. LÄS MER

  5. 5. New Housing Developments: A Localisation Strategy considering Energy-Efficiency from an Urban Structure and Transport Perspective for the city of Falun

    Magister-uppsats, Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Författare :Adeyemi Kazeem Ajayi; [2020]
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : There are several considerations when planning new housing developments, and resultant problems require critical analysis. This thesis has focused on studying some part of the potential issues in the case of a project in the city of Falun. LÄS MER
