  1. 1. Human Behaviour in Social-Ecological Systems Insights from economic experiments and agent-based modelling

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University

    Author : Caroline Schill; Therese Lindahl; Anne-Sophie Crépin; Johan Colding; Carl Folke; Juan Camilo Cárdenas; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Human behaviour; Common-pool resources; Ecological complexity; Collective action; Sustainable resource use; Regime shifts; Thresholds; Uncertainty; Communication; Knowledge-sharing; Economic experiments; Laboratory and field experiments; Agent-based modelling; Complex adaptive systems; Social-ecological systems; vetenskap om hållbar utveckling; Sustainability Science;

    Abstract : Progress towards sustainability requires changes in our individual and collective behaviour. Yet, our fundamental understanding of behaviour in relation to environmental change remains severely limited. READ MORE

  2. 2. Agents, auctions and interactions: Modelling markets for ecosystem services and renewable energy

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Liv Lundberg; [2018]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Market interactions; Cobweb model; Auctions for renewable energy; Environmental Policy; Renewable Energy; Payment for Ecosystem Services; Land-use competition; Bioenergy; Auctions; Agent-based modelling;

    Abstract : If we are to mitigate climate change and tackle other pressing environmental issues such as biodiversity loss, environmental policies will be crucial. The papers in this thesis all focus on how individual behaviour and lack of information affects the outcome of environmental policy, using agent-based models where individual actors and their behaviour are explicitly modelled.

    Abstract : This thesis addresses the application of spatial approaches to disease surveillance and control from three different aspects. First, temporal trends, geographical distribution and spatial pattern of cardiovascular disease admission rates were explored on a national level in Sweden. READ MORE

  4. 4. From resource efficiency to resource conservation Studies, developments and recommendations for industrial implementation of circular manufacturing systems

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science

    Author : Michael Lieder; Amir Rashid; Tomohiko Sakao; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Circular economy; Circular manufacturing systems; Resource conservative manufacturing; ResCoM; Agent-based modelling; Multi-method modelling; Production Engineering; Industriell produktion;

    Abstract : Manufacturing industry is under permanent pressure to maintain its economic growth and profitability as strong societal backbone. At the same time pressures of waste generation and resource consumption are increasing as result of manufacturing operations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Investigating Spatial Data Infrastructure Planning in Tanzania using System Modelling and Social Concepts

    University dissertation from Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science, Faculty of Science, Lund University

    Author : Alex Lubida; [2019-11-15]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Spatial Data Infrastructure; System Dynamics technique; Agent Based Modeling; Community of Practice; Multi- Objective Optimization; Land use planning;

    Abstract : Spatial Data Infrastructure is one of the requirements for sustainable development and many countries worldwide are at different stages of implementation. Several researchers have shown that SDI has helped governments to recover funds due to reduction in duplication of efforts and also has increased efficiency in resource management and planning.
