  1. 1. Analysing the effects of governmental control policies in transport chains using micro-level simulation

    Författare :Linda Ramstedt; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Transportation; Transport chain; Governmental control policy; Micro-level simulation;

    Sammanfattning : Increasing freight transportation volumes continue to increase problems related to human health, congestion on the transport infrastructure, noise, climate changes, etc. Governments often want to minimize these negative effects, and this wish is expressed in societal goals, e.g., to reach environmental targets.

  2. 2. Conflict in the Eye of the Storm : Micro-dynamics of Natural Disasters, Cooperation and Armed Conflict

    Författare :Colin Walch; Cecilia Albin; Ashok Swain; Richard Matthew; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :armed conflict; natural disaster; rebel group; micro-dynamics of civil war; resilience; disaster risk reduction and management; rebel group recruitment; conflict analysis; climate change; cooperation; conflict resolution; negotiation; ripeness; the Philippines; India; Colombia.; Peace and Conflict Research; Freds- och konfliktforskning;

    Sammanfattning : Many of the most destructive natural disasters have taken place in situations characterized by armed conflict and insecurity: the Indian Ocean tsunami in Sri Lanka and Indonesia in 2004, the floods in Pakistan in 2011, the drought in Somalia in 2011 and typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in 2013. Surprisingly little research has systematically explored how armed conflict affects natural disaster management, and how shocks from natural disaster influence conflict dynamics. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Energy Management in Large scale Solar Buildings : The Closed Greenhouse Concept

    Författare :Amir Vadiee; Viktoria Martin; Philip Griffiths; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Thermal Energy Storage; Energy Saving; Thermoeconomic Assessment; Energy Management Scenario; Micro Climate Control; Solar Building; Closed Greenhouse; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Sammanfattning : Sustainability has been at the centre of global attention for decades. One of the most challenging areas toward sustainability is the agricultural sector. Here, the commercial greenhouse is one of the most effective cultivation methods with a yield per cultivated area up to 10 times higher than for open land farming. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Essays on Field Experiments and Impact Evaluation

    Författare :Remidius Denis Ruhinduka; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; adaptation to climate change; ambiguity; artefactual field experiment; behavioraleconomics; charcoal; credit; deforestation; endogenous switching regression; field experiment; guilt; honesty; impact evaluation; kindness; liquidity constraint; LPG stoves; rice marketing; risk preferences; system of rice intensification; Tanzania; time preferences;

    Sammanfattning : Paper 1: Improving Welfare Through Climate-Friendly Agriculture: The Case of the System of Rice Intensification We use rich survey data to investigate the economic impact of a climate-friendly rice farming method known as the system of rice intensification (SRI) on the welfare of rain-dependent small-holder farmers in Tanzania. SRI reduces water consumption by half, which makes it a promising farming system in the adaptation to climate change in moisture constrained areas, and it does not require flooding of rice fields, resulting in reduced methane emissions.

  5. 5. Market-Oriented Programming and its Application to Power Load Management

    Författare :Fredrik Ygge; Institutionen för datavetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Distribution Automation Demand Side Management DA DSM ; Power Load Management; Coordination Mechanisms; Market-Oriented Programming; Multi-Agent Systems; Systems engineering; computer technology; Data- och systemvetenskap; Market-oriented programming; power load management; computational markets; intelligent agents; distributed resource allocation;

    Sammanfattning : Market-oriented programming is a new approach to design and implementation of resource allocation mechanisms in computer systems. It has its roots in different disciplines, such as economics and computer science (in particular the area of multi-agent systems). LÄS MER
