  1. 1. Grasping complexity: analysing risk for sustainable development

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University

    Författare :Per Becker; [2010]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; design; sustainable development; Development; risk; risk analysis; sustainability science; disaster; value; hazard; vulnerability; system; capability; human-environment systems; systems approach; design science.;

    Sammanfattning : Sustainable development relies on our ability to make decisions today that will determine our tomorrow. Given that uncertainty is explicitly allowed to influence our view of what the future holds for us, most ex ante analyses of challenges for sustainable development can be viewed as analysing risk.

  2. 2. Primary Production in African Drylands : Quantifying Supply and Demand Using Earth Observation and Socio-ecological Data

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science

    Författare :Abdulhakim Abdi; [2017-02]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Net Primary Production NPP ; Africa; Drylands; Coupled Human and Natural Systems; Human-Environment Relations; Food; Fuel; Feed; Earth Observation; Remote Sensing; Biomass; Carbon; Supply and Demand;

    Sammanfattning : The human-environment connection in the mostly rural drylands of sub-Saharan Africa forms a complex, interlinked system that provides ecosystem services. This system is susceptible to climatic variability that impacts the supply of its products, and high population growth, which impacts the demand for these products. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Concentration Difficulties in the School Environment - with focus on children with ADHD, Autism and Down's syndrome

    Detta är en avhandling från Environmental and Energy Systems Studies, Lund university

    Författare :Catrin Tufvesson; [2007]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Down s syndrome; concentration; children; building process; ADHD; the Human Environment Interaction-model; individual adjusment; learning; indoor environment; school environment; Psykologi; Psychology; Humanities; Humaniora; autism;

    Sammanfattning : The overall aim of this thesis was to identify environmental factors that affect children with ADHD, autism, and Down's syndrome and their ability to concentrate in their learning environment at school. The issue of this research is not to dismiss any of the additional resources these children are in need of; instead it is to suggest how to arrange learning environments in the most supportive way possible based on the initial needs of these children.

  4. 4. Meaning and Action in Sustainability Science Interpretive approaches for social-ecological systems research

    Detta är en avhandling från Environmental and Energy Systems Studies, Lund university

    Författare :Simon West; Lisen Schultz; Lorrae van Kerkhoff; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Meaning; interpretive; social-ecological system; complexity; science-policy interface; transformation; sustainability science methodology; vetenskap om hållbar utveckling; Sustainability Science;

    Sammanfattning : Social-ecological systems research is interventionist by nature. As a subset of sustainability science, social-ecological systems research aims to generate knowledge and introduce concepts that will bring about transformation. Yet scientific concepts diverge in innumerable ways when they are put to work in the world. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Intention recognition in human machine collaborative systems

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH

    Författare :Daniel Aarno; Danica Kragic; Darius Burschka; [2007]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Robotics; Human-machine collaboration; Virtual fixture; hidden Markov model; Machine learning; Artificial intelligence; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Robotsystem har använts flitigt under de senaste årtiondena för att skapa automationslösningar i ett flertal områden. De flesta nuvarande automationslösningarna är begränsade av att uppgifterna de kan lösa måste vara repetitiva och förutsägbara. LÄS MER
