    Risk perception, choice of drinking water and water treatment: evidence from Kenyan towns2014In: Journal of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene for Development, ISSN 2043-9083, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 268-280Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study used household survey data from four Kenyan towns to examine the effect of households' characteristics and risk perceptions on their decision to treat/filter water as well as on their choice of main drinking water source. Because the two decisions may be jointly made by the household, a seemingly unrelated bivariate probit model was estimated. It turned out that treating non-piped water and using piped water as a main drinking water source were substitutes. The evidence supports the finding that perceived risks significantly correlate with a household's decision to treat non-piped water before drinking it. The study also found that higher connection fees reduced the likelihood of households connecting to the piped network. Because the current connection fee acts as a cost hurdle which deters households from getting a connection, the study recommends a system where households pay the connection fee in instalments, through a prepaid water scheme or through a subsidy scheme.

    Climate change impacts on Namibia’s natural resources and economy2008In: Climate Policy, ISSN 1469-3062, E-ISSN 1752-7457, Vol. 8, no 5, p. 452-466Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Climate change is likely to exacerbate the dry conditions already experienced in southern Africa. When rainfall does come, it is likely to be in bursts of greater intensity, leading to erosion and flood damage. However, these predictions have had very little influence on policy in southern African countries. Computable general equilibrium (CGE) model simulations for Namibia indicate that over 20 years, annual losses to the Namibian economy could be up to 5% of GDP, due to the impact that climate change will have on its natural resources alone. This will affect the poorest people the most, with resulting constraints on employment opportunities and declining wages, especially for unskilled labour in rural areas. Namibia must take steps to ensure that all its policies and activities are ‘climate proofed’ and that it has a strategy to deal with displaced farmers and farm workers. The need to mainstream climate change into policies and planning is clear, and it is the responsibility of industrialized nations, who have largely created the problem of climate change, to help Namibia and other vulnerable countries cope with climate change impacts and plan for a climate-constrained future.

    Environmental Fiscal Reform in Namibia: A Potential Approach to Reduce Poverty?2012In: Journal of Environment and Development, ISSN 1070-4965, E-ISSN 1552-5465, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 219-243Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, the likely effects of an environmental fiscal reform in Namibia are examined using a Computable General Equilibrium model. We find that a triple dividend—improving the environment, increasing employment, and reducing poverty at the same time—remains elusive. Subsidizing unskilled labor would give the most favorable result in terms of real GDP and employment, but the worst in terms of environmental effects. Transfers targeted toward poorer households have the best distributional and environmental impacts, but do not lead to increases in GDP or employment. Thus there is scope to create additional benefits for society through the various environmental fiscal reform options studied, but there is no option that clearly outperforms the others in all respects.

    The size and distribution of the economic impacts of Namibian hunting tourism2007In: South African Journal of Wildlife Research, ISSN 0379-4369, E-ISSN 1996-8477, Vol. 37, no 1, p. 41-52Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to analyse the economic impacts of hunting tourism in Namibia. The economic impacts of hunting that takes place in communal land conservancies and on private lands, respectively, are studied, as well as the distribution of these impacts between different sectors and groups in the country. The study is based on data from a survey of hunters who visited Namibia during a five-year period. The income generated by hunting tourism, and the distribution of this income, are analysed using a recently developed Social Accounting Matrix (SAM). In aggregate, an extra N$ in spending by survey respondents translates into approximately one extra N$ in national income, and an average survey respondent’s spending raised overall national income by an amount corresponding to two to three years’ income for an average Namibian. The additional income generated by hunting tourism and associated tourism benefits rural households and urban wage earners to a greater extent, and capital owners to a lesser extent, than the average income distribution in the economy.

    Habitat banking in Swedish rivers and water bodies: A concept paper on implementing the EU Water Framework Directive2013In: European Water, ISSN 1105-7580, no 42, p. 65-74, article id 5Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The European Union (EU) Water Framework Directive entails extensive environmental improvement goals for lakes and rivers throughout the Union. Realising these goals in countries such as Sweden, which has tens of thousands of water bodies, many of which are used for commercial activities such as hydropower, presents a considerable challenge for policy. In this paper, habitat banking – where environmental improvements in one location are used to offset measures that reduce environmental quality elsewhere – is discussed as a potential way forward. The conclusion is that although this would likely be limited to banking within individual river systems rather than across the entire country, it would nonetheless be an interesting option to consider. Although habitat banking is more complex in aquatic than in terrestrial systems, because of the migratory nature of many of the keystone species improvements in the downstream parts of a river system can potentially generate enough environmental benefits to offset the impacts of measures further upstream.

    Living in a bubble: potential gains from flexible water management policies2018In: Applied Economics Letters, ISSN 1350-4851, E-ISSN 1466-4291, Vol. 25, no 19, p. 1368-1372Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We study Swedish implementation of the European Union’s Water Framework Directive, and compare the current implementation strategy with more flexible ‘bubble’ schemes, where measures can be traded among various locations within the same river system to reach the overall environmental target. Two different Swedish river systems, the Mörrum system with small-scale hydropower plants, and the Ångerman system with larger plants, are studied. We find that the environmental benefits that current policies are likely to accomplish could be achieved at well under half the cost in the Mörrum system, and at less than a tenth of the cost in the Ångerman system.

    Not long before the end?: SF and the economics of resource scarcity2017In: Fafnir-Nordic journal of science fiction and fantasy research, ISSN 2342-2009, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 34-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The commodity price booms of the early 1970s and of 2006–2014 wereboth associated with predictions of devastating scarcity of key natural resources, inpopular media as well as in science fiction. However, both price booms endedwithin a few years for largely similar reasons, linked to the economic incentives thathigh commodity prices create. Given the economic forces that ensure that spells ofresource scarcity usually do not last, writers of science fiction set in scarcity futures,especially fiction of the “if this goes on…” type, need to provide plausible reasonswhy those forces might stop working. This paper examines how authors describingresource-scarce future Earths have attempted to offer such reasons, and how thosereasons have evolved over time.

    Projekt: Framtagande av relevant och användaranpassad samhällsekonomisk modell för miljöåtgärder för kraft och liv i vatten (FRAM-KLIV)2016Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Samhällsekonomisk lönsamhetsbedömning (cost-benefit analysis (CBA)) är en metod för att utvärdera den ekonomiska rimligheten i olika miljöåtgärder i vatten, där nyttor av miljöåtgärder och kostnader i form av t.ex. minskad energiproduktion vägs samman. Detta ger ett viktigt underlag för att kunna prioritera mellan olika miljöåtgärder.Huvudsyftena är att i samverkan med KLIV-programmets intressenter (1) ta fram ett CBA-verktyg, dvs. en användarvänlig CBA-modell för samhällsekonomisk värdering av vattenkraftrelaterade miljöåtgärder, och (2) identifiera vilka frågor som CBA-verktyget kan besvara och vilka frågor som kan besvaras inom ramen för kompletterande ansatser, särskilt multikriterieanalys, och vilka kriterier som skulle vara relevanta i tillämpningar av multikriterieanalys.För att uppnå syftena genomförs projektet som en stegvis process i vilken ingår såväl kommunikation med användare och andra intressenter som faser mer inriktade på arbetet med själva CBA-verktyget.

    Abstract [sv]

    Tillgång till vatten är ett avgörande livsvillkor. Genom ändringar i klimatet påverkas tillgången på vattenresurserna och dess globala fördelning. Vatten är också en viktig resurs när det gäller att producera energi. Den tekniska utvecklingen är av betydelse för den vattenkraftsbaserade energins ekonomi. Långsiktigt effektiv användning av vatten vid energiproduktion och annan industriell användning inklusive hänsyn till vatten som livsmiljö, både globalt, nationellt och lokalt, är därför ett forskningsområde som berör samhället med avseende på ekonomi, teknik och miljö. Tyngdpunkten inom projektet avser ekonomiska analyser av olika tekniska lösningars och samhällsförhållandens miljökonsekvenser.

    The value of the Swedish eel fishery2015In: Marine Resource Economics, ISSN 0738-1360, Vol. 30, no 1, p. 21-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Traditional sectors such as agriculture and fishing often receive special treatment from policymakers because such sectors are perceived to be associated with traditional cultural public good values. However, these values are often difficult to measure and few attempts have been made to do so. The recent European Union eel management directive creates an unusually clear-cut trade-off between eel fishing and other agents affecting the European eel population. It is possible, therefore, to measure directly the perceived public good value of the eel fishery in terms of other economic costs that policymakers are willing to incur in order to maintain eel fishing. Using Swedish data, we find that Swedish policymakers value the public good aspect of the remaining Swedish eel fishery at at least SEK 34 million (approximately EUR 3.4 million) annually, which is more than the commercial eel fishery’s actual production value.

    Project: Restoration of forests, carbon and livelihoods: REDD+ and the economics of miombo land use2016Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    This application brings together a multidisciplinary team to study the opportunities for, and implications of, better management of miombo forest landscapes in Tanzania. To develop and improve miombo production systemsthere is need for both broadened and deepened understanding of present land use, forest ecology, forest products economy, and related social and economic structures on process scale and up-scaled in the landscape. Tightly coupled to this is the analysis on the appropriateness and sustainability of different C-sequestration and C-trade mechanisms and land use forest management in relation to adaptation to climate vulnerability. Tanzania is chosen because of significantly heightened interest in the forest sector, but the suggested research will be applicable for the larger miombo area as well as for dry land Africa at large.

    Projekt: Jordbruk i afrikanska länder - information och marknadsmakt2016Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Mellanhänder på den afrikanska landsbygden har ett övertag gentemot bönderna, i form av att de har bättre information än bönderna om priser på grödor och insatsvaror på regionala marknader. De kan utnyttja detta till att erbjuda bönderna låga priser på grödor och höga priser på insatsvaror, vilket avskräcker bönderna från att öka sin produktion. Förändrad tillgång till information om priser på regionala marknader, antingen via offentliga satsningar på exempelvis radiosändningar om priser eller via privat utbyggnad av mobiltelefonnätet, kan därför potentiellt ha stor effekt på den lokala prisbildningen och (på längre sikt) på jordbruksproduktionen.Programmet kommer för det första att utveckla teoretiska modeller för hur förändrad tillgång på information påverkar förhandlingsspelet mellan bönder och mellanhänder. För det andra kommer vi att analysera de faktiska effekterna av två sådana informationssatsningar i Etiopien (via radio) och Rwanda (via mobiltelefoni). Vi kommer att utnyttja att vi, via tidigare upparbetade kanaler, har tillgång till mycket bra data för bägge länder.Den låga produktiviteten i jordbruket är ett av de viktigaste problemen i Afrika i dag. Om förbättrad information till bönderna kan leda till ökad produktivitet är det en billig lösning på flera av de problem som Afrika står inför, och det är därför viktigt med en bättre förståelse av hur stor effekt sådana informationssatsningar faktiskt har.

    The economics of the Swedish individual transferable quota system: Experiences and policy implications2016In: Marine Policy, ISSN 0308-597X, E-ISSN 1872-9460, Vol. 66, p. 15-20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden and other European Union countries are currently carrying out extensive work aimed at improving the marine and freshwater environment. The adaptive management approaches typically used for this require the development of new policy instruments and measures when needed, but also evaluations of instruments and measures already in use or under way. This paper reports on a study of the Swedish individual transferable quota system introduced in 2009 for the pelagic fishery. The new system was motivated mainly by economic arguments and, thus, the need to get incentives right. Despite this, the design of the Swedish system weakened the intended incentive effects in several ways, compared with the foreign systems that served as models. Moreover, the information needed for future evaluations was not collected, even though the need for future evaluations had been expressed explicitly and the data needs for this could be identified at the time that the system was introduced.

    What are the drivers of the Swedish sustainable development path?: New evidence from Bayesian Dynamic Linear Models2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we use Swedish Genuine Savings (GS) indicators, extended to account for a wider range of impacts on natural and human capital than previous GS indicators, to study Swedish long-term sustainability. Following Ferreira et al (2008) and Greasley et al (2014), technological progress and population effect are also included in the GS measures. We introduce a new quantitative methodology to the literature on sustainable development by applying Bayesian analysis of Dynamic Linear Models (DLMs) to GS indicators. This is the first time that parameter uncertainty has been used in examining the links between GS and long term well-being, providing new empirical evidence on the driving forces that underpin Swedish sustainable development.
