Court grants Arctic village rights over hunting and fishing after lawyers for state were accused of ‘rhetoric of race biology’
Sweden’s nomadic reindeer herders have won a 30-year battle for land rights in a court case that has seen the state accused of racism towards the country’s only indigenous people.
The 27th UN-Water Meeting will take place from 25-26 August 2017, at the City Conference Center in Stockholm, Sweden. The meeting gathers UN-Water members and partners to discuss issues related to UN-Water, and is taking place prior to the annual World Water Week. UN-Water coordinates the efforts of UN entities and international organizations working on water and sanitation issues. Over 30 UN agencies, programmes and other UN entities dealing with water-related issues, including sanitation and natural disasters are Members of UN-Water.
Farmers are key actors in land management confronted with societyâs increasing demand for public goods. Understanding farmersâ values and motivations is essential to policy makers to foster more sustainable production practices. So far, no definite value profile for European farmers exists. Based on Schwartzâs theory of basic human values, we statistically analyzed six rounds of the European Social Survey to explore farmersâ value orientations in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Switzerland.
Many boreal waters are currently becoming browner with effects on biodiversity, fish production, biogeochemical processes and drinking water quality. The question arises whether and at which speed this browning will continue under future climate change. To answer the question we predicted the absorbance (a₄₂₀) in 6347 lakes and streams of the boreal region under future climate change. For the prediction we modified a numerical model for a₄₂₀ spatial variation which we tested on a temporal scale by simulating a₄₂₀ inter-annual variation in 48 out of the 6347 Swedish waters.
Human activities have exerted a powerful influence on the biogeochemical cycles of nitrogen (N) and carbon (C) and drive changes that can be a challenge to predict given the influence of multiple environmental stressors. This study focused on understanding how land management and climate change have together influenced terrestrial N storage and watershed inorganic N export across boreal and subâarctic landscapes in northern Sweden.
Forest use in Sweden may be seen as constituting an essentially conflicted area, in which a number of actors position themselves. Based on a review of policy documents, this study reviews discourses on forest amongst major organisational actors between 2001 and 2011, with the aim of discussing the ways in which discourse may have changed following increasing criticism of the previously dominating production paradigm during the period. The study also discusses the ways in which forest discourses at present may also exclude areas that are relevant to forest planning.
