  1. 1. Resilience and Adaptivity of EU Pesticides Law - Assessing Theory and Legal Capacity

    Magister-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Juridiska institutionen

    Författare :Henrik Jansson; [2019-08-09]
    Nyckelord :pesticides; agriculture; resilience; EU law; adaptive law;

    Sammanfattning : The utilisation of pesticides within agriculture may contribute to a transgression of the ecological boundaries of the Earth. However, pesticides play an essential role in sustaining human welfare by providing food security. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Investigating the Environmental Footprint of Swedish Household Consumption

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Författare :Tobias Steinegger; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Environmental Footprint; Sweden; Consumption; Household; Expenditures;

    Sammanfattning : Production-based indicators show that Sweden has lower emissions per capita than other high-income countries. Nevertheless, scientific evidence points to a significant overshoot of some of the planetary boundaries, especially regarding climate change, if Swedish consumption-related emissions abroad are considered.

  3. 3. Stroller Service System : How to make customer products sustainable within the planetary boundaries - using the case product ‘stroller’, PSS and a Design Thinking approach

    Master-uppsats, Linköpings universitet/Maskinkonstruktion

    Författare :Gustav Thorslund; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Product Service System; PSS; Circular Economy; Service Design; Sustainability; Planetary Boundaries; Stroller; Design Thinking; Product Development; Wood; b2c; refurbish;

    Sammanfattning : Physical customer products have an environmental impact, such as greenhouse gas emissions, due to the use of virgin resources from cradle-to-grave, especially when the origin of the material is from fossil resources. This thesis aims to create a circular business model, by investigating the product ‘stroller’ and place it in a Product Service System, where the user subscribes to the Stroller Service System.

  4. 4. Crop diversity in Scania : geographical and cognitive mapping

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Författare :Shaktima López Hösel; [2019]
    Nyckelord :crop diversity; agroecology; food systems; ecosystem services; resilience; farmer s motivations; geographical information systems; self-determination theory; cognitive mapping;

    Sammanfattning : Modern agriculture is characterized by large scale and large-scale farming of a few crops, which rely heavily on external inputs. These kinds of intensive and specialized farming systems are contributing to exceeding the planetary boundaries for our ecosystems. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Conceptualizing green water within the planetary boundary for freshwater use

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

    Författare :Arne Tobian; [2019]
    Nyckelord :green water; planetary boundaries; land use modelling; physical geography; ecosystem analysis; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Anthropogenic land-use covers a constantly increasing fraction of the terrestrial surface area. By employing a dynamic global vegetation model, human-induced changes in the terrestrial water balance as compared to an undisturbed scenario were simulated. LÄS MER
