Climate change will affect urban workers the most, according to a study modelling the effects of climate change in 16 developing countries. The survey examined the potential economic influence of adverse climate events, such as heat waves, drought and heavy rains, on seven socioeconomic groups.
For millennia, India used surface storage and gravity flow to water crops. During the last 40 years, however, India has witnessed a decline in gravity-flow irrigation and the rise of a booming
Environmental assessment of passenger transportation should include infrastructure and supply chains
To appropriately mitigate environmental impacts from transportation, it is necessary for decision makers to consider the life-cycle energy use and emissions. Most current decision-making relies on analysis at the tailpipe, ignoring vehicle production, infrastructure provision, and fuel production required for support. We present results of a comprehensive
