  1. 1. Governance, mobility and citizen engagement : Governance Processes in the Transport Sector in the Republic of Guinea

    University essay from KTH/Urbana och regionala studier

    Author : Christelle Fermanian; [2020]
    Keywords : Transport; Guinea; governance; planning; mobility; planning processes;

    Abstract : Governance processes are very complicated in the transport sector in the Republic of Guinea, because of a multiplicity of actors (a complicated institutional framework, the involvement of western countries and China in the country, and the power of the private sector with the mining companies), a historical background (the engagement and disengagement of western countries with the colonization), and a lack of financial means from the government. However, the transport sector is very important in terms of development for Guinea, first because the economy of the country is based on mines and agriculture (both needing an efficient transport sector) and secondly because of a growing population in the last decade.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/LUCSUS

    Author : Cristian Pons-Seres; [2019]
    Keywords : community renewable energy; energy transition; collective investment; greenhouse gas emissions; sustainability science; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : The European Union’s (EU) ‘market-oriented’ approach to renewable energy development risks undermining the ability of individual citizens to meaningfully contribute to, and benefit from, a decentralised, localised, and decarbonised energy system. In spite of the EU’s ambition to involve local communities for co-driving a low-carbon energy transition, there is no comprehensive analysis uncovering the extent to which citizen participation can meaningfully contribute to decarbonise Europe’s energy system within an increasingly limited timeframe demanding drastic cuts in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at an accelerated pace.
