  1. 1. Do forests have an impact on water availability? : Assessing the effects of heterogeneous land use on streamflow in two monsoonal river basins

    Författare :Julie Wilk; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis is to assess the effects of land use changes on streamflow in two river basins, the upper Bhavani in south India and the upper Nam Pang in northeast Thailand. In the Nam Pang basin, the forest cover has decreased from 80% to 27% in the last 30 years. Despite this, almost no changes in streamflow patterns or amountswere found. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The Story of Phosphorus : Sustainability implications of global phosphorus scarcity for food security

    Författare :Dana Cordell; Stuart White; Jan-Olof Drangert; Julie Wilk; Johan Rockström; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; global phosphorus scarcity; peak phosphorus; global food security; sustainable resource use; food production and consumption system; transdisciplinary; systems thinking; global fosforbrist; peak fosfor; global matsäkerhet; hållbar resursanvändning; system för produktion och konsumtion av mat; transdisciplinaritet; systemtänkande; Water in nature and society; Vatten i natur och samhälle;

    Sammanfattning : The story of phosphorus began with the search for the philosopher’s stone, and centuries later the critical role of phosphorus in soil fertility and crop growth was highlighted. Eventually, phosphorus was implicated in the global environmental challenge of eutrophication. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Access to water : Rights, obligations and the Bangalore situation

    Författare :Jenny T. Grönwall; Johan Hedrén; Julie Wilk; Srinivasan Janakarajan; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; access to water; rights; human rights; water rights; India; Bangalore; tillgång till vatten; rättigheter; mänskliga rättigheter; vattenrättigheter; Indien; Bangalore; Water in nature and society; Vatten i natur och samhälle;

    Sammanfattning : The city of Bangalore in southern India is undergoing rapid urbanisation and administrative transition. Its growth puts pressure on the available water sources – being mainly the disputed inter-State River Cauvery and the hard-rock aquifers – with ensuing problems of access. LÄS MER

  4. 4. To leak or not to leak? : Land‐Use Displacement and Carbon Leakage from Forest Conservation

    Författare :Sabine Henders; Madelene Ostwald; Martin Persson; Julie Wilk; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Climate change; land‐use change and deforestation; accounting methods; consumer and producer responsibility; REDD ; Klimatförändring; markanvändning och avskogning; redovisningsmetoder; konsument‐ och producentansvaret; REDD ;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates the question how emissions from land‐use displacement can be assessed and accounted for, using the example of carbon‐leakage accounting in the planned UNFCCC mechanism on ‘Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation’ (REDD). REDD serves here as example of an international forest conservation policy that might be effective locally but could lead to displacement of deforestation to other countries. LÄS MER
