  1. 16. Reforestation & Marine Permaculture: Does the Method Affect the Willingness To Pay for Carbon Offsetting? A Randomised Contingent Valuation Study

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för nationalekonomi med statistik

    Author : Elice Fällström; August Schelin; [2020-07-24]
    Keywords : Carbon offsetting; Reforestation; Marine permaculture; Contingent valuation; Willingness to pay; Samhällsvetenskapligt miljövetarprogram;

  2. 17. Modelling gross primary production in semi-arid regions: effects on carbon uptake of intensive agriculture in southern Kenya

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Malin Ahlbäck; [2020]
    Keywords : Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; GPP; Africa; Kenya; Land cover changes; Cropland; Remote sensing; Sentinel-2; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Background and aim: Gross primary production (GPP) is the largest global carbon (C) flux and an important component for counteracting anthropogenic CO2 emissions, understanding vegetation dynamics, and sustaining universal human standards. Africa plays a prominent role in the global C cycle, though our understanding of GPP dynamics is largely hampered by a paucity of ground-based observations. READ MORE

  3. 18. GIS-based approach to estimate direct economic damages of fluvial flooding under various future scenarios: A case study of the Neckar river basin (Germany)
