    Housing Careers in a Changing Welfare State2003Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The departure point of this thesis was changes to the welfare state. These changes began during the recession in the 1970s and were emphasised in the beginning of the 1990s. The housing market was particularly affected, as the state almost completely withdrew its engagement. Questions were raised as to how the development of the welfare state and the subsequent changes have affected different sectors of the housing market (social housing) and the housing careers of different groups.

    Besides the introduction the thesis consists of five papers, beginning with a review article on the effect of welfare state changes on the social housing stock in some western countries. The social housing sector (housing the lowest income groups) became more residualised as the concentration of low-income households in this sector increased in most countries. At the same time, government interest in this sector decreased.

    The second, third and fourth papers follow the housing careers of different groups in three Swedish municipalities during the period 1985–1995. Nest-leaving and choice of tenure of the young population, aged 16–24, in the Gävle municipality were studied. A study of two cohorts showed that nest-leaving was postponed during the recession of the early 1990s when unemployment rates were high among young people. A slight increase in moves to co-operative housing was seen during this period. Immigrants in Jönköping, Gävle and Västerås were studied. Results show that the structure of the local housing market as well as time spent in Sweden are important factors in the housing careers of immigrants. In areas with a large share of owner-occupation, immigrants live in this type of housing to a larger extent. A housing career similar to that of the Swedish population is more common among immigrants who have spent a longer time in Sweden. Residential mobility of seniors towards the city centres in the same municipalities showed only a marginal increase in this type of move. However, the characteristics of those moving were those that, to a large extent, characterise the baby boom generation born in the 1940s. As a result, this type of move can be expected to increase as this group retires.

    Finally, the fifth paper follows the housing career of four cohorts during the development of the welfare state after 1945. The cohorts were born in 1925, 1942, 1955 and 1970, respectively. They were interviewed about the meaning attached to the terms size, tenure and location, important factors in the development of Swedish housing policy. Despite differences in the housing market at the start of their housing careers, with time the cohorts developed similar demands on size, standard and location. Tenure was not cohort-specific but was instead discussed as degrees of freedom found in owner occupation or rental tenure.

    Salmon angling as a resource in regional development in the Swedish counties Norrbotten and Västerbotten1998Inngår i: Recreational Fisheries: Social, Economic and Management Aspects / [ed] Phil Hickley and Helena Tompkins, Oxford: Fishing News Books Ltd , 1998, 142-149 s.Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Around the world, sportfishing for salmon is a major industry. Rivers attracting salmon anglers can make a big contribution to the local economy. As a result of exploitation and environmental impacts most of the approximately 70 former salmon rivers in the Baltic basin have been damaged and lost their spawning capacity. There is, however, a big potential for salmon angling in the remaining salmon rivers entering the Baltic sea, especially in the Swedish counties of Norrbotten and Västerbotten in north Sweden. The chapter aims to describe the effects of a possible future situation with full scale sportfishing for salmon in northern Sweden. An assessment was made of the aggregate economic effects based on the hypothetical future scenario taking into account the potential amount of salmon returning to the rivers included in our study. The economic estimate is based on a catch amounting to 300 tonnes per year. This return may support an angling activity with approximately 300 000 days in the whole region. Transformed into economic terms this could lead to a total economic impact of about SEK200 million per annum, economic multipliers included.

    Green consumption energy use and carbon dioxide emission2002Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to explore the quantitative potential to reduce energy requirements and CO2 emissions through changed patterns of consumption, given unchanged levels of consumption expenditure.

    The thesis question is analysed using a systems analysis approach which in this case means that life cycle assessment data on energy requirements and CO2 emissions related to household consumption are combined with a financial and behavioural analysis to make sure that the budget constraint is kept and that both the first and second order effects of adopting a green consumption pattern are analysed. The budget constraints are kept using a general linear model. By using marginal propensities to spend to direct the reallocation of saved or deficit money calculated utility is maintained as far as possible. Further, investigations explore the impact of individual household demographic characteristics and geographic context on household consumption patterns, energy requirements and CO2 emissions.

    The key result of this thesis is that changed household behaviour, choosing “green“ products and energy efficient technology will not make a big difference. What can be achieved in the short time perspective by adopting an almost completely green consumption pattern and energy efficient technology is a reduction of energy requirements by around 8% and CO2 emissions by around 13%. With a longer time perspective and further technological change that provides additional possibilities to move consumption patterns in a greener direction, the effect on energy requirements and CO2 emissions is still fairly small. By 2020, the potential to reduce energy requirements is around 13% and CO2 emissions around 25%. In the most extreme scenario (2050), the scope for reducing energy requirements is 17% and for CO2 emissions 30%. All these reductions will be outpaced by growth in income almost as soon as they are implemented.

    Of policy relevance the results reveal that very limited impact can be expected by a policy relying on greener consumption patterns, whether adopted voluntarily or as a result of incentives such as tax changes. Such a policy cannot achieve more than a small and temporary reduction to growth in energy requirements and CO2 emissions. It is also shown that, prescribing specific consumption patterns as a means of reducing energy requirements and CO2 emissions has to be done with care. This is illustrated by one of the experiments in which adopting a partly green consumption pattern, a green diet, in fact increased total energy requirements and CO2 emissions. This, and the results of all the other experiments show the importance of applying a systems approach. It demonstrates that life cycle data alone are irrelevant for assessing the total effects of adopting green consumption patterns. Further research on the potential to reduce energy requirements and CO2 emissions thus primarily needs to better capture system wide effects rather than to improve on, and fine tune the measurement of the energy requirements and CO2 emissions related to individual products.

    Public spending on rural tourism in Sweden2016Inngår i: Fennia, E-ISSN 1798-5617, Vol. 194, nr 1, 18-31 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Tourism is an important part of rural policies in European countries. An increased demand for rural amenities is seen as creating a more diversified labour market and contributing to the restructuring of the economy, from primary sectors and manufacturing to a more service-oriented economy, which has been termed a "new rural economy". As a result, and as often presented in many policy documents, tourism is now seen as a universal tool for rural development. The purpose of this study is to investigate the distribution of public spending on tourism in rural areas in Sweden. It focuses on public spending on the main programme for rural development, the Swedish rural development programme, but also on the regional structural funds programmes, from 2000 to 2013. Another subject of interest is how policy makers understand rural tourism as presented in policy documents since these documents, to a great extent, direct programme spending in terms of projects and their content. This study is based on register data on programme spending, policy documents and programme evaluation reports. Results show that a relatively small amount of total public spending targets tourism – mainly going to accommodation, activities and marketing efforts – indicating that tourism is still not a prioritised area despite policy makers’ understanding of rural tourism as expressed in policy documents. Thus, although public efforts target adequate parts of the tourism industry, they cannot be expected to contribute significantly to the restructuring of the rural economy.

    Use of questionnaires and an expert panel to judge the environmental consequences of chemical spills for the development of an environment-accident index2005Inngår i: JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT, ISSN 0301-4797, Vol. 75, nr 3, 247-61 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Assessing the environmental consequences of a chemical accident is a complex task. To date, the methods used to evaluate the environmental effects of an acute release of a chemical have often been based on measurements of chemical and physical variables deemed to be important, such as the concentration of the chemical. However, a broader strategy is needed to predict the environmental consequences of potential accidents during the planning process. An Environment-Accident Index (EAI), a simple tool based on such a strategy, has been developed to facilitate the consideration of a multitude of influential variables. The objectives of this study were to evaluate whether questionnaire-based expert panel's judgements could provide useful data on the environmental consequences of chemical spills, and an effective basis for further development of the EAI. As expected, the judgements did not agree perfectly, but they do give rough indications of the environmental effects, and highlight consistent trends that should be useful inputs for planning, prevention and decontamination processes. The different accidents were also judged to have caused everything from minor to very major effects in the environment, implying that a wide range of accident scenarios were represented in the material and covered by the EAL Therefore, questionnaires and expert panel judgements can be used to collect useful data for estimating the likely environmental consequences of chemical accidents and for further development of the EAI.

    Tourisme et femmes2010Inngår i: Teoros, ISSN 1923-2705, Vol. 29, nr 2, 87-92 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [fr]

    Aujourd’hui, l’importance du genre dans les études portant sur le tourisme n’est plus un sujet nécessitant un débat. En effet, depuis les années 1990, une littérature conséquente montre l’importance du genre dans ce domaine. La relation entre genre et tourisme peut être pensée de différentes façons. Annette Pritchard et Nigel Morgan (2000) reprennent les propositions antérieures de Rao (1995) en affirmant que le lien le plus notable entre le genre et le tourisme provient du fait que le tourisme apparaît comme le produit d’une société «genrée». Le développement du tourisme reflète bien les relations entre les sexes ainsi que leurs variations dans le temps et dans l’espace. Moins d’une décennie plus tard, Pritchard et al. (2007 : 1), tout en montrant le rôle important joué par le féminisme sur la question du genre et du tourisme, se demandent désormais si, à l’ère du postmodernisme, féminisme et analyse de genre ne seraient pas dépassés, voire obsolètes

    The spawning salmon as a resource by recreational use : the case of the wild Baltic salmon and conditions for angling in north Swedish rivers2001Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the thesis is to analyse the preconditions for increasedsalmon angling in the remaining wild salmon rivers in Upper Norrland in northernSweden, as well as to evaluate the present and possible future impacts on the localeconomy. It includes the identification of the internal and external conditions, in what ishere called the Salmon Utilisation Landscape, that influence the present use as well asfuture development of the Baltic salmon as a resource in angling. The empirical materialsderive from two mail surveys, 1) a survey of anglers in the River Byske and 2) a jointNordic survey on the economic value of recreational fishing.Interest in recreational fishing is widespread in Sweden. About 35 % of adultSwedes fish for recreation. Recreational fishery and angling can be seen as one expressionof the urbanised society's need for contact with nature and outdoor recreation. Salmonangling is one part of recreational fishery. Salmon are considered by many to be the 'biggame' of angling. Salmon anglers are often the most devoted kind of anglers, investingconsiderable resources into this leisure activity. The subgroup of Swedish salmon anglingspecialists is estimated at 10-30,000 persons. The wider category of Active River anglersconsists of approximately 170,000 persons.Salmon fishing in the River Byske has turned out to be representative of salmonangling in Upper Norrland, comparable with other high-class Scandinavian salmon rivers.The growing proportion of remote anglers in the 1990s indicates that the Byske hasbecome a rather specialised angling water. The groups of Fishing tourists and Home fishersmake up two distinctive categories. Fishing tourists fish more intensively, have higher dailyexpenditures and show higher consumer surplus. They fish the river almost entirely forsalmon in. On the other hand, Home fishers to a large extent claim the right to fish fordecent prices and without any particular restrictions. During the 1990s, the average annualincome to the local economy of Byske river valley derived from salmon angling fishingtourism was about 850,000 SEK.Many river habitats have been depleted during the 20th century and many salmonstocks were exterminated by severe degeneration factors linked to industrialisation. To thisis added the over-fishing on wild stocks of salmon and the mortality syndrome, M74. Theavailable estimates of the potential production of wild salmon smolt in Upper Norrlandaggregates close to 1.2 million. This can be converted to an angling activity of some250,000 fishing days.On the basis of the prevailing cost level, the potential angling activity in UpperNorrland would amount to a direct annual turnover of 75 million SEK, however theimpact caused by fishing tourism is likely to remain within the interval of 10 - 30 millionSEK. The Active River anglers' average willingness to pay for annual access to a salmon andsea trout scenario was 1,100 SEK per capita. There is a widespread attitude among manyanglers that fishing should be accessible for all and prices should be kept low. In theNordic context such opinions are especially evident among Swedish anglers in general, butless frequent among devoted salmon anglers.

    Regional patterns in Swedish recreational fisheries2003Inngår i: Regional Experiences for Global Solutions / [ed] APM Coleman, Darwin, 2003, 39-42 s.Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Interest in Sweden, as in the other Nordic countries, for recreational fishing is widespread. About 35 % of adult Swedes fish for recreation. However, different regional patterns are evident concerning participation, attitudes towards the use of national resources and willingness-to-pay (WTP) for access to recreational fishing. One factor is to be found in the regional differences within Sweden: the population found in rural areas is generally more interested in fishing than people in urban areas. The recreational fishermen in the peripheral areas have, on the other hand, lower relative WTP for their fishing.

    Swedish recreational fisheries is based on roughly 10-20 % of the overall Swedish catch, while the yearly expenditure by recreational fishermen is about three times larger than the value derived from the commercial fisheries in Sweden. In a recent public survey, preservation and environmental issues concerning the overall fish stock was stressed, with the proposition of a general fishing fee in Sweden (long present in the other Nordic countries). The paper is based mainly on analysis of the Swedish component of a large Nordic survey. A comparison is also made with contemporary material from the official Swedish survey on recreational fisheries.

    Kontraurbanisering i Umeåregionen2002Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    During the past decade almost every western society has experienced an urbanization process that has led to a substantial population growth in metropolitan areas. After World War II some periods of a reversed migration stream, so called counterurbanization, has occurred implying that population figures in smaller towns and some rural areas have increased. The purpose of this study is to describe whether any counterurbanization process has taken place in the Umeå urban region in Sweden. More precisely the aim is to analyze the migration pattern from the city of Umeå to the city’s hinterland defined by a distance of 50 kilometers, for the period 1985 to 1995. This is done in order, on one hand, to find characteristics for these people (incomeand education level, age, sex), and on the other hand, to find out if there is any spatial difference in attractiveness between places within the region. The following variables were tested with regard to their impact on outmigration patterns; the presence of smaller towns in the region; proximity to sea, lakes or rivers, distance from the city of Umeå; locations of second homes; access to a public road and the proximity to open land from the place of residence. The investigation shows that there are significant geographical differences of attraction levels between places in the region. The variable that is most important to explain where migrants fromUmeå have settled down is the presence of smaller towns. Another important explanation is the distance from the city of Umeå. The number of new inhabitants decreases according to an almost linear function with an increasing distance from Umeå. Proximity to water, open land and the access to public roads are also shown to be essential characteristics of some attractive places. People who have migrated from Umeå to the city’s hinterlands have an average income of 158.600 Sek. which is about 9.000 Sek. lower than the income of the inhabitants of Umeå. The education level among the migrant is also a bit lower than among people living in Umeå. As the differences between the migrants and the inhabitants of Umeå in fact are quite small, one may doubt that the counterurbanization from Umeå is a result of displacement.

    The importance of stressful events during childhood on adult labour market outcome2011Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines if stressful events during childhood impact the labour market position in adulthood within the Swedish 1973 birth cohort. Empirical analyses are based on individual, longitudinal register data from the ASTRID database covering the total Swedish population between 1960-2008. We will analyze the different ways in which three specific events; parental separation, death of parent(s) and/or frequent migration, affect labour market outcome in an OLS-regression, controlling for family background characteristics. These events can occur in isola- tion or they can be interrelated. It is of importance to examine the effect of one single event as well as the accumulated effect of several events. The 1973 cohort makes an interesting case, since they both have experienced change in the nuclear family system during their childhood, and a period of recession and youth unemployment as well as cutbacks in social policy programmes during their age of labour market entrance. Our study thus focuses on how stressful events in childhood affect children’s life courses in turbulent times.

    How does labour mobility affect the performance of plants?: The importance of relatedness and geographical proximity2009Inngår i: Journal of Economic Geography, ISSN 1468-2702, E-ISSN 1468-2710, Vol. 9, nr 2, 169-190 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the impact of skill portfolios and labour mobility on plantperformance by means of a unique database that connects attributes of individuals to features of plants for the whole Swedish economy. We found that a portfolio of related competences at the plant level increases significantly productivity growth of plants, in contrast to plant portfolios consisting of either similar or unrelated competences. Based on the analysis of 101,093 job moves, we found that inflows of skills that are related to the existing knowledge base of the plant had a positive effect on plant performance, while the inflow of new employees with skills that are already present in the plant had a negative impact. Our analyses also show that geographical proximityinfluences the effect of different skill inflows. Inflows of unrelated skills only contribute positively to plant performance when these are recruited in the same region. Labour mobility across regions only has a positive effect on productivity growth of plants when this concerns new employees with related skills.

    A socially resilient urban transition?: The contested landscapes of apartment building extensions in two post-communist cities2011Inngår i: Urban Studies, ISSN 0042-0980, E-ISSN 1360-063X, Vol. 48, nr 13, 2689-2714 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Even though social processes across the globe are increasingly being theorised through a resilience lens, this has rarely been the case within the domain of everyday life in the city. The resilience debate also remains highly geographically selective, as regions that have undergone far-reaching systemic change over the past 20 years-including the post-communist states of the former Soviet Union and eastern and central Europe (ECE)-generally remain omitted from it. In order to address such knowledge gaps, an investigation is made of the relationships between social resilience and micro-level socio-spatial change in the built environment of the post-communist city, by focusing on the institutional, spatial and economic underpinnings of apartment building extensions (ABEs) on multistorey residential buildings in the Macedonian capital of Skopje and the Georgian capital of Tbilisi. Both cities contain a wide variety of ABEs, whose reinforced concrete frame constructions often rival the host buildings in terms of size and function. By exploring the architectural and social landscapes created by the extensions, it is hoped to highlight their embeddedness in a set of policy decisions and coping strategies, as well as their controversial implications on the present and future use of urban space.

    Botniabanan - förväntningar i tid och rum på regional utveckling och resande2005Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the thesis is twofold: to analyze the effects of the expectations on the Bothnia Line on the housing market and expectations on railway use. To fulfill these aims, three questions are considered:

    1. To what extent is property prices influenced by the expected effects of the Bothnia Line?

    2. Are there differences in expectations on regional development and future journeys between residents in different locations and with different individual characteristics?

    3. How are trips to work affected by the expectations on the Bothnia Line and the performance of the train service according to residents in different locations?

    Property prices are investigated quantitatively with data delivered from Lantmäteriet. The data contains every sold property from 1994 to 2001 in the municipalities of Umeå, Nordmaling, and Örnsköldsvik. Expectations on regional development and future traveling on the Bothnia Line were investigated with two questionnaires conducted in the autumn of 2002.

    The empirical results from the study of property prices are clear. There are no signs of influence from the Bothnia Line on the property prices close to the railway stations or in the proximity of the railway.

    The empirical results from the questionnaires reveal a mixed picture of the expectations. In the municipalities located furthest away from the railway, the expectations are low. On the contrary, a large proportion (>75 %) of the residents in municipalities along the railway line believe it can be useful for the population in general when searching for new employment opportunities. This is especially true for males living in Örnsköldsvik. A significantly smaller proportion (≈25 %) believes they will use the railway themselves.

    One explanation to the geographic variations is that they are a result from an ongoing diffusion process. Residents in Örnsköldsvik were the first ones to have a visual image of the railway since the construction started there. As the construction continues, the expectations might increase in other locations as well. Another possibility is that people only react on word of mouth from someone that actually made a trip before they consider changing the mode of transport. If that is the case, the expectations will increase only after the opening of the railway line.

    With the exception of residents in Nordmaling, expectations on future journeys with the Bothnia Line are low. The low expectations on journeys on the Bothnia Line might be explained by the lack of attraction between the places along the line. They are satisfied with their present situation and cannot find any rationale to consider other alternatives. It is a different story if they are forced to consider other alternatives. The result from a stated preference study shows that if they are offered employment at another place, the majority is willing to commute.

    Climate change in Northern Sweden: intra-regional perceptions of vulnerability among winter-oriented tourism businesses2011Inngår i: Journal of Sustainable Tourism, ISSN 0966-9582, E-ISSN 1747-7646, Vol. 19, nr 8, 919-933 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Climate change is a potential threat to society and business. Although research has noted that the tourism sector may be robust on the macro scale, significant losses at local levels have been suggested. This paper examines Upper Norrland, in Northern Sweden, by measuring the perceptions of winter-oriented tourism entrepreneurs. Their perceptions of potential threats from climate change are assessed, including how entrepreneurs view the future, in terms of climate change impacts and sustainability of the region as a winter-tourism destination. A quantitative survey of entrepreneurs (n = 63) gave responses along geographical and operator dimensions to reveal local differences within the Upper Norrland region, showing the coastland to be perceived as more exposed to change than inland areas. Venue-based businesses see climate change as a higher priority than activity-based, potentially mobile, businesses, regardless of their location. The general perception among businesses is that climate change will not drastically impact the tourism sector over the next 10 years. A basic model for mapping local differences is outlined to stimulate further study of the under-researched intra-regional nuances in climate change and tourism research. A case is made for regional planners to use this tool and to educate local businesses on adaptation techniques.

    Abstract [en]

    The present review addresses the Swedish social science game research, but outlooks are made to both the Norwegian qualitative research about the large carnivore conflicts and when it has been appropriate, looks are also taken towards more international research. The review concerns mainly two major areas of research. The first area deals with research related to hunting and game, in which such research on the economic importance of hunting is analyzed. Here we also find the relatively comprehensive environmental economic research on people’s willingness to pay for different species. The second major area of research concerns the social science research conducted in Sweden (and Norway) around the large carnivores. The conflict surrounding large carnivores naturally dominates among the reviewed studies. But even studies about the media coverage of large carnivores and large carnivore-based wildlife tourism are also covered in this review.

    Exploring Dutch Migration to Rural Sweden: International Counterurbanisation in the EU2012Inngår i: Tijdschrift voor economische en sociale geografie, ISSN 0040-747X, E-ISSN 1467-9663, Vol. 103, nr 3, 330-346 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores whether the concept of counterurbanisation, expanded with an internationaldimension, offers a valuable framework for understanding recent migration flows from theNetherlands to Sweden. Using a geo-referenced database comprising demographic and socioeconomicvariables, the post-migration employment status, employment sector and settlementlocation of Dutch migrants in Central Sweden are analysed. In addition, results from observation,interviews and a survey during emigration fairs are employed to describe the motives for migrationfrom the Netherlands to Central Sweden. We argue that counterurbanisation is not an exhaustedresearch topic, when international political, economic and socio-cultural factors are added to thestudy.

    Impact of precautionary behaviors during outbreaks of pandemic influenza: modeling of regional differences2009Inngår i: AMIA Annual Symposium proceedings Archive, ISSN 1942-597X, Vol. 2009, 163-7 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Using time geographic theory for representation of population mixing, we set out to analyze the relative impact from precautionary behaviors on outbreaks of pandemic influenza in Europe and Asia. We extended an existing simulator environment with behavioral parameters from a population survey to model different behaviors. We found that precautionary behaviors even among a minority of the population can have a decisive effect on the probability of the outbreak to propagate. The results also display that assumptions strongly influences the outcome. Depending on the interpretation of how many "children" are kept from "school", R(0) changes from a range where outbreak progression is possible to a range where it is improbable in both European (R(0)=1.77/1.23) and Asian (R(0)=1.70/1.05) conditions. We conclude that unprompted distancing can have a decisive effect on pandemic propagation. An important response strategy can be to promote voluntary precautionary behavior shown to reduce disease transmission.

    Abstract [en]

    ELIASSON K., LINDGREN U. and WESTERLUND O. (2003) Geographical labour mobility: migration or commuting?, Reg.

    Studies 37, 827–837. In this paper, we examine how individual labour market status and spatial variations in employment

    opportunities influence interregional job search behaviour and mobility decisions in Sweden. The econometric analysis is based

    on 290,000 individual observations and refers to the years 1994–95. The empirical results show that the probability of

    interregional labour mobility unexpectedly decreases with the accessibility to employment opportunities in neighbouring

    regions. As expected, the findings reveal that accessibility to job openings in surrounding regions significantly increases the

    likelihood of choosing commuting as the mobility mode.Moreover, the empirical findings indicate that individual unemployment

    experience increases the likelihood of mobility as well as migration.

    Abstract [en]

    Many proposals have been made for the more successful inclusion of LULUCF (Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry) in the Kyoto framework. Though the positions of individual states or the goal of avoided deforestation guide many approaches, our model sets cost-effective strategies for climate change mitigation and the efficient and balanced use of forest resources at its center. Current approaches to forest resource-based carbon accounting consider only a fraction of its potential and fail to adequately mobilize the LULUCF sector for the successful stabilization of atmospheric greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations. The presence of a significantly large "incentive gap" justifies the urgency of reforming the current LULUCF carbon accounting framework. In addition to significantly broadening the scope of carbon pools accounted under LULUCF, we recommend paying far greater attention to the troika of competing but potentially compatible interests surrounding the promotion of standing forests (in particular for the purposes of carbon sequestration, biodiversity protection and ecosystem promotion/preservation), harvested wood products (HWP) and bioenergy use. The successful balancing of competing interests, the enhancement of efficiency and effectiveness and the balanced use of forest resources require an accounting mechanism that weighs and rewards each component according to its real climate mitigation potential. Further, our data suggest the benefits of such a broadly based carbon accounting strategy and the inclusion of LULUCF in national and international accounting and emission trading mechanisms far outweigh potential disadvantages. Political arguments suggesting countries could take advantage of LULUCF accounting to reduce their commitments are not supported by the evidence we present. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

    Climate change poses societal challenges on an unprecedented scale. It implies changes to North–South power balance and responsibility, forcing societies to begin to reconceptualise current development models and dominant narratives. This paper draws on the Climate Change and Development Futures: Shaping the Invisible panel held at the Development Studies Association 2008 Annual Conference titled Development’s Invisible Hands. It reviews some of the relevant literature and analyses the opportunities and barriers that development and Development Studies face in re-conceptualising development futures.

    Abstract [en]

    Climate change poses the most significant foreseeable threat to the development of humankind. Among the parts of the globe liable to be affected, the developing world is the most vulnerable to climate risks. Introducing a DPR theme issue on how development policy is responding to the increasingly pressured global climate agenda, this article reviews what is being done and still needs to be done, paying particular attention to action on three policy frontiers: (i) adaptation actions and finance, (ii) mitigation policies and their governance, and (iii) the implications for development planning. It addresses what will be needed for the development community to rise to the challenge in the run-up to the Copenhagen conference in 2009 and beyond
