  2. 2. Linking lake variability, climate, and human activity in Basotu, Tanzania

    Författare :Lindsey Higgins; Lars-Ove Westerberg; Jan Risberg; Sarah Davies; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Tanzania; crater lake; climate change; land-use change; water resources; environmental variability; diatoms; paleolimnology; chronology; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Sammanfattning : Paleoenvironmental investigations establish important baseline knowledge of the natural variability of lake systems, to better understand human impacts on the landscape, and the effects of climate change on water resources. By combining long-term environmental history with investigations into modern land use patterns and climatological events, a wider perspective can be reached that has practical applications in water governance.

  5. 5. Landslides in the central Kenyan highlands : Risks and actors

    Författare :Michaela Nylund; Lars-Ove Westerberg; Ingmar Borgström; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Sammanfattning : Measures taken to prevent and mitigate landslides are often based on geotechnical solutions. However, to understand local effects of landslides, people’s perception, knowledge and experiences are important, as this influence the level of vulnerability, and the efficacy of adaptive and mitigating measures.
