  1. 1. Essays in Environmental Management and Economics: Public Health, Risk and Strategic Environmental Assessment

    Författare :Daniel Slunge; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []

    Sammanfattning : Abstract Current large-scale environmental and climate change leads to the emergence of new and potentially dramatic risks for individuals and societies. The welfare costs associated with these risks largely depend on our ability to take them into account in decision-making and adapt to new circumstances. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Integrated and Probabilistic Risk Analysis of Drinking Water Systems

    Författare :Andreas Lindhe; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; water safety plan; customer minutes lost; probabilistic; fault tree analysis; risk analysis; risk; integrated; drinking water system; hazard; uncertainty;

    Sammanfattning : Drinking water supply is an essential public function but is at the same time exposed to risks. Since a totally risk-free society is not attainable, risks need to be managed efficiently to achieve an acceptable level of risk. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Disaster risk management and climate change adaptation in urban contexts: Integration and challenges

    Författare :Claudia Rivera; Avdelningen för Riskhantering och Samhällssäkerhet; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; mainstreaming; Nicaragua; risk governance; Sweden; urban planning; disaster risk reduction; disaster risk management; Climate change adaptation;

    Sammanfattning : An increasing number of disasters continue to affect urban populations and housing infrastructure. The overwhelming majority of them have been caused by climate-related events. This situation has made the creation of synergies between climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk management (DRM) urgent. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Adherence to drug treatment and interpretation of treatment effects

    Författare :Erik Berglund; Per Lytsy; Ragnar Westerling; Tove Hedenrud; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Suboptimal adherence to medical treatments is prevalent across several clinical conditions and can lead to treatment failure. Adherence is a far from fully explored phenomenon and there is little knowledge about how patients interpret treatment effects. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Behaviour under predation risk in birds

    Författare :Cecilia Kullberg; Neil B Metcalfe; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Animal physiology; Zoofysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Predation is a major selective force in the evolution of both morphological and behavioural characters in animals. The flexibility in behavioural traits according to perceived predation risk has received much attention in recent years. LÄS MER
