  1. 1. Research and reflections on European air pollution policy support models

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Stefan Åström; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Economic perspectives; Decomposition analysis; Policy support modelling; Short-lived Climate Pollutants; Climate metrics; Air pollution; International shipping; Economic methodology; Integrated assessment modelling; Cost-benefit analysis;

    Abstract : European emissions to air of SO2, NOx, PM2.5, NH3 and NMVOC still today cause harm to human health and the environment. These pollutants are associated with the premature death of ~400 000 people annually in the EU (25 000 perished in traffic accidents 2017). Improvements are expected but problems will persist.

  2. 2. Design and Investigation of a Decision Support System for Public Policy Formulation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Computer and Systems Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Osama Ibrahim; Aron Larsson; David Sundgren; Els van Daalen; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Systems Thinking; Prescriptive Policy Analysis; Policy modelling and Simulation; ICT for governane; Sense4us; Policy Impact Assessment; Scenario Planning; Knowledge synthesis; data- och systemvetenskap; Computer and Systems Sciences;

    Abstract : The ultimate aim of support for public policy decision making is to develop ways of facilitating policymaking that can create policies that are consistent with the preferences of policymakers and stakeholders (such as an increase in economic growth, the reduction of social inequalities, and improvements to the environment), and that are at the same time based on the available knowledge and evidential information.Using the design science research methodology, an iterative design process was followed to build and evaluate a research artefact in the form of an analytical method that is also operationalised as a decision support system (DSS) – in order to facilitate the problem analysis, the impact assessment and the decision evaluation activities carried out at the policy formulation stage of the policymaking process.

    Abstract : In December 2013 the European Commission proposed an amendment of the National Emissions Ceilings Directive with new ambition levels for harmful emissions of SO2, NOx, NH3, PM2.5, and Non-Methane Volatile Organic Compounds. READ MORE

  4. 4. Congestion Charging in Urban Networks : Modelling Issues and Simulated Effects

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Ida Kristoffersson; Leonid Engelson; Otto Anker Nielsen; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transport Modelling; Congestion Charging; Departure Time Choice; Dynamic Traffic Simulation; Welfare Effects; Equity;

    Abstract : One of the major challenges cities face today, in their development towards sustainable urban areas, is the need for an efficient and environmentally friendly transport system. This transport system should manage to tie together the city without strong adverse impact on urban environment, air-quality and climate change. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development of a Risk-Based Decision Model for Prioritizing Microbial Risk Mitigation Measures in Drinking Water Systems

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Abstract : Risk management of drinking water systems is crucial since our society relies on these systems to be robust and sustainable to supply safe drinking water now and to future generations. Pathogens may spread in drinking water systems and cause waterborne outbreaks resulting in human suffering and large costs to the society. READ MORE
