  1. 1. Climate vulnerability assessment methodology Agriculture under climate change in the Nordic region

    Author : Lotten Wiréhn; Tina-Simone Schmid Neset; Björn-Ola Linnér; Giuseppe Feola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Agriculture; Assessment methodology; Climate change; Geographic Visualization; Indicator-based methods; Vulnerability; Bedömningsmetodologi; Geografisk Visualisering; Indikatorbaserade metoder; Jordbruk; Klimatförändringar; Sårbarhet;

    Abstract : Food security and climate change mitigation are crucial missions for the agricultural sector and for global work on sustainable development. Concurrently, agricultural production is directly dependent on climatic conditions, making climate change adaptation strategies essential for the agricultural sector. READ MORE

  2. 2. University and Culture: a Phenomenological Analysis of Formal and Informal Discourse on Education and Research at Universities in Sweden and China

    University dissertation from School of Economics and Management, Lund University

    Author : Josef Mörnerud; [2016]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; University; Culture; Science and Technology Studies; Phenomenology; Research; Education; Meaning-Constitution-Analysis; formal and informal discourse; Sweden; China;

    Abstract : In this research, science and its political appearance are studied through an empirical exploration of their representations in narrative expressions. The field of investigation is allocated to formal and informal discourse on university, education and research in Sweden and China. READ MORE

  3. 3. Overcoming inertia to sustainable stormwater management practice

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Annicka Cettner; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Abstract : In Sweden, there is a growing receptivity for change to more sustainable stormwater practices using green infrastructure approaches. Unlike piped drainage systems they can have multiple benefits in use including flood control, pollutant removal and can add to the quality of urban space supporting green infrastructure through irrigation and providing cooling and an additional water source for supply.
