    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Building; carbon-dioxide equivalent emissions; global warming potential; primary energy use; life cycle assessment; life cycle cost; Byggnad; koldioxidekvivalenta utsläpp; global uppvärmningspotential; pri-märenergianvändning; livscykelbedömning; livscykelkostnad;

    Sammanfattning : The building industry is responsible for 35% of final energy use and 38% of CO2 emissions at a global level. The European Union aims to reduce CO2 emissions in the building industry by up to 90% by the year 2050. Therefore, it is important to consider the environmental impacts buildings have. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Weather and extreme heat in association to mental disorders : The case of Hanoi, Vietnam

    Författare :Phan Minh Trang; Maria Nilsson; Joacim Rocklöv; Kim Bao Giang; Mare Löhmus Sundström; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Depressive disorders; mental disorders; weather patterns; elevated temperature; and heatwaves.; Epidemiology; epidemiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Vietnam suffers consequences of global warming. There is limited data of the relationship between weather, extreme heat and potential mental health problems. It is therefore crucial to study heat-related mental illnesses and to establish good solutions with relevant adaptations to global warming. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Climate Change, Dengue and Aedes Mosquitoes : Past Trends and Future Scenarios

    Författare :Jing Liu-Helmersson; Joacim Rocklöv; Åke Brännström; Eduardo Massad; Richard Paul; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Background Climate change, global travel and trade have facilitated the spread of Aedes mosquitoes and have consequently enabled the diseases they transmit (dengue fever, Chikungunya, Zika and yellow fever) to emerge and re-emerge in uninfected areas. Large dengue outbreaks occurred in Athens in 1927 and in Portuguese island, Madeira in 2012, but there are almost no recent reports of Aedes aegypti, the principal vector, in Europe. LÄS MER
