    Abstract : In an increasingly urban world, cities' global resource uses grow. Two fundamental resources for making cities liveable are water and energy. These resources are also closely interlinked – systems that convert and deliver energy to cities require water, and urban water systems use energy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exploring low-carbon development pathways for Bolivia - A model-based analysis focused on the energy sector

    Abstract :  I skrivande stund uppskattas 860 miljoner människor globalt sakna tillgång till el. Målet att uppnå universal tillgång till el under det kommande decenniet – i enlighet med mål 7 av de globala målen för hållbar utveckling (SDG 7) – indikerar att många länder snart kommer att behöva införa riktlinjer, handlingsplaner och policys för att påskynda elektrifieringstakten.
