Background: There are studies that analyze the role of meteorological variables on the incidence and severity of COVID-19, and others that explore the role played by air pollutants, but currently there are very few studies that analyze the impact of both effects together. This is the aim of the current study. We analyzed data corresponding to the period from February […]

Parties to the Paris Agreement (PA) have agreed on the goal of limiting the increase in global average temperature to well below 2◦C and are pursuing efforts to limit warming to 1.5◦C. Countries’ nationally determined contributions (NDCs) comprise the main framework used to achieve this. In this context, Mozambique’s NDC includes, amongst other actions, increased renewable energy (RE) generation. This […]

Climate change has important population health impacts, and cities are often on the frontlines. However, health is reported to be less active in climate adaptation than other sectors. To contribute to better understanding urban health adaptation efforts and identifying gaps we developed a City Climate Health Adaptation Typology and tested it with adaptation actions of 106 large world cities (population […]

Given the crosscutting character of climate change, improving our understanding of its integration into sectorial policy domains is relevant. We contribute empirically with a case study in Mexico where we analyze climate policy integration in terms of policy outputs and processes. Firstly, we adapted an approach to measure events of regulatory output change and applied it to our original dataset […]

One longstanding strand of research in the development studies literature has concerned itself with the development of innovation capabilities in developing-country firms. As most of this literature focuses on domestic firms, foreign-owned firms, such as subsidiaries of multinational companies (MNC), have received much less attention. In this paper, we address this knowledge gap by conducting an in-depth study exploring the […]

Urban and peri-urban communities across the Global South face considerable energy access challenges with over one billion people living without adequate access to basic services such as energy, water, and healthcare. Lack of access to modern energy services has cascading effects on the United Nations 2030 Agenda and the achievement of the corresponding Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In this article […]

In the literature on sustainability transitions, increasing attention has been devoted to the conceptualization and analysis of policy mixes. However, previous research has scarcely examined the relationship between policy mixes and their effects on the actors being targeted. Furthermore, it has neglected the issue of the heterogeneity of target groups and its effect on their responses to policy mixes. In […]
