  1. 1. Entangled Cities : Transnational Municipal Climate Networks and Urban Governance

    Författare :Henner Busch; LUCSUS; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; transnational municipal climate networks; local climate governance; urban development; climate change mitigation; climate change adaptation; Germany;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates the influence of transnational municipal climate networks (TMCNs) on urban climate governance in Germany. The reality of climate change means that cities all over the world are faced with two challenges. First, they need to go through decarbonisation transitions to mitigate climate change. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Investigating the Determinants of International, National and Local Climate Policies

    Författare :Lauri Peterson; Christer Karlsson; Charles Parker; Per Adman; Niklas Harring; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; political science; climate policy; environmental politics; quantitative research; Statskunskap; Political Science;

    Sammanfattning : Climate change is a global threat that requires policy action on all levels of governance. The 2015 Paris Agreement opened a new era of governance, entailing a shift away from the top-down approach embodied by the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. LÄS MER

  3. 3. District Heating and CHP : Local Possibilities for Global Climate Change Mitigation

    Författare :Kristina Difs; G. Björn Karlsson; Louise Trygg; Thomas B. Johansson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :District heating; combined heat and power; carbon dioxide emissions; optimisation; energy policies; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Global warming, in combination with increasing energy demand and higher energy prices, makes it necessary to change the energy use. To secure the energy supply and to develop sustainable societies, construction of energy-efficient systems is at the same time most vital. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Mobility Management and Climate Change Policies

    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Strategic Sustainable Development SSD ; Backcasting; Greenhouse gas emissions; Traffic planning; Company travel planning; Mobility Management; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Sammanfattning : Globally, the transport system faces a paradigmatic shift where, in addition to increased local traffic problems, climate change and depletion of fossil oil reserves will foster a successive transition to renewable fuels and a need for more resource-efficient mobility management and communication alternatives. Foresighted countries, cities or companies taking the lead in adapting to these tougher conditions might well not only solve those problems, but also turn the problems into business advantages.
