  1. Agricultural nature conservation in the Netherlands: three lenses on transition pathways.

    In this paper three approaches on transitions pathways are combined to study the role of agricultural nature conservation in the Dutch land use domain for achieving internationally agreed climate...

  2. Pathways for agriculture and forestry to contribute to terrestrial biodiversity conservation: a global scenario-study

    While there has been an increase in the societal responses to biodiversity loss, in most cases this will not be sufficient to achieve the biodiversity targets by 2020, let alone to realise the...

  3. The (ir)relevance of economic segregation

    Cities are economically segregated to various degrees. Segregation translates into greater homogeneity of neighborhoods: the rich and the poor usually occupy separate parts of the city. In response...

  4. The continental divide? Economic exposure to Brexit in regions and countries on both sides of The Channel

    In this article we demonstrate that 10-17% of regional GDP in the UK regions is exposed to a Brexit. This is far more than regions in other countries. Only regions in the Republic of Ireland face...

  5. Scenarios towards limiting global mean temperature increase below 1.5 °C

    The 2015 Paris Agreement calls for countries to pursue efforts to limit global-mean temperature rise to 1.5 °C. The transition pathways that can meet such a target have not, however, been...

  6. Relative price increase for nature and ecosystem services

    In 2015, the Dutch working group on discount rates recommended using the standard discount rate in cost-benefit analyses (CBAs) of nature, while taking into account annual relative price increases...

  7. Forms and subannual variability of nitrogen and phosphorus loading to global river networks over the 20th century

    Nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) loading of global aquatic ecosystems has doubled during the 20th century and at the same time has the nutrient composition been disturbed by increasing proportions...

  8. Limited emission reductions from fuel subsidy removal except in energy-exporting regions

    Hopes are high that removing fossil fuel subsidies could help to mitigate climate change by discouraging inefficient energy consumption and levelling the playing field for renewable energy. In...

  9. Signal detection in global mean temperatures after Paris: an uncertainty and sensitivity analysis

    Since large financial flows will be needed to keep GMSTs (global mean surface temperature s) below 2.0 °C , it is important to know how GMST has progressed since pre-industrial...

  10. The role of individual characteristics in car ownership shortly after relationship dissolution

    The end of a relationship is a life event that often coincides with many other changes in life, such as a decline in income level or household size or a change of residence. This study aims to...
