What Are the Environmental Benefits and Costs of Reducing Food Waste? Bristol as a Case Study in the WASTE FEW Urban Living Lab Project
The city of Bristol currently generates around 48,000 tonnes of household food waste every year. This waste incurs loss of resources and environmental damage throughout the food cycle. In this paper we quantify and value the baseline socio-environmental impacts from household food waste in Bristol b...
Microclimatic characteristics of three different urban districts in a context of more frequent and intense heatwaves
International audience Located in the south-eastern part of France, the territory of the Greater Lyon consists in 59 communes covering an area of 524 square kilometres and housing a population of about 1.3 million. First signs of climate change have taking the form of a rise in average annual and se...
The Marginalization of Sustainable Charcoal Production in the Policies of a Modernizing African Nation
Charcoal is the main cooking fuel for urban populations in many African countries. Urbanization and population growth are driving an increase in demand for charcoal, whilst deforestation reduces biomass stocks. Given increasing demand for charcoal, and decreasing availability of biomass, policies ar...

Foreign direct Investment and food security in developing countries
Developing countries (DCs) have a high population growth and food demand. Moreover, foreign direct investment (FDI) is in the heart of investment policy. DCs attract FDI to improve their economic growth. This optimistic view is contradicted by negative effects on their economies. We based our analys...
The geography of being born too small and spatiotemporal relationships with the outdoor environment
Degree: Doctor of Philosophy Abstract: Background: The geography of where pregnant mothers live is important in furthering our understanding of babies born too small. Many causes are suspected to restrict growth or incur premature delivery, and include prenatal exposures from natural, social, and bu...

Neighbourhood Modelling for Urban Sustainability Assessment
Climate change is becoming a dominant concern for advanced countries. The Paris Agreement sets out a global framework whose implementation relates to all human activities and is commonly guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), which set the scene for sustainable develop...
Energy challenges: European views and French responses
Europska unija nastoji poboljšati europsko energetsko tržište na način da bude bolje koordinirano, jer u ujedinjenoj Europi nije više moguće djelovati izdvojeno. Proizvodnja energije iz obnovljivih izvora velikih razmjera zahtijeva međusobno povezano europsko energetsko tržište, ako se žele postići...
Do Urban Subway Openings Reduce PM2.5 Concentrations? Evidence from China
With the fast-growing consumption of automobiles in China, vehicle fumes appear to be one of the major contributors to PM2.5 (fine particles with a diameter of 2.5 μm or less) emissions. As a type of green transportation, Chinese urban subway transit has developed rapidly in recent years. This paper...
Passive cooling for thermal comfort in informal housing
Energy-poor households in Africa’s burgeoning urban informal settlements are especially likely to suffer from heatwaves because of thermally inefficient dwellings and lack of affordable cooling options. This study utilised a controlled experiment to assess the effectiveness of passive cooling throug...
Low Carbon Energy Symbiosis for Sustainability: Review of Shared Value-based Policy Metabolism to Enhance the Implementability of the Sustainable Development Goals in Asia
The low energy symbiosis for development metabolism is reviewed for its potential to enhance the implementability of the Sustainable Development Goals. Metabolism is the carrying capacity limit of rural-urban or rurban eco-systems, that is self-replenishable through endurability drawn from metabolic...
Effects of Targeting Energy Subsidies on Domestic Electricity Demand in Iran
The ever-increasing electricity consumption in Iran, mainly due to its low and, in fact, unrealistic price, has caused the nationwide power supply network to fail meeting the demand; therefore, optimizing its price is an important issue in the management of the electricity supply and demand. Domesti...
