Few climate change adaptation strategies of rural women : a case study of Ndwedwe-Cibane, KwaZulu-Natal.
Climate change is documented to impact food, energy and water (FEW) resources. Rural women are vulnerable to climate change impacts due to their high dependence on natural resources. Despite numerous studies on climate ...
Climate change learning in an electricity utility: distribution division case study, Eskom, South Africa.
One of the most significant ways in which humans have damaged the environment is the contribution to rapid global warming which causes major changes to the climate on earth, resulting in many negative impacts to humans ...
An investigation into the climate change mitigation potential of road transport emissions in eThekwini Municipality.
The South African transport sector as a whole is the second largest source of green house gas (GHG) emissions, with South Africa’s road transport sector contributing 80-90% of the total transport emissions. As such there ...
Linking thermal variability and change to urban growth in Harare Metropolitan City using remotely sensed data.
Urban growth, which involves Land Use and Land Cover Changes (LULCC), alters land surface thermal properties. Within the framework of rapid urban growth and global warming, land surface temperature (LST) and its elevation ...
Discrimination and biomass estimation of co-existing C3 and C4 grass functional types over time : a view from space.
The co-existence of C3 and C4 grass species significantly influence their spatio-temporal variations of biochemical cycling, productivity (i.e. biomass) and role in provision of ecosystem goods and services. Consequently, ...
Climate change projections and public behaviour towards adopting integrated mitigation and adaptation approaches at a household level in urban areas, the eThekwini Municipality, KwaZulu-Natal.
Globally since the 1970s, the temperature has increased rapidly and remains unpredictable because of its accelerating pace (Thompson, 2010). This has increased the frequency and intensity of daily temperature, together ...
Climate change responses in urban low-income groups, Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
South Africa is urbanising at an unsustainable rate such that the levels of urban poverty and inequality are rising, taking the country further from its attainment of the sustainable development goals, mainly, the elimination ...
An investigation into the co-benefits of climate change mitigation and adaptation for the waste sector in the eThekwini Municipality.
Abstract available in PDF file.
The utility of Sentinel-2 MSI to assess wetland vegetation chlorophyll content and leaf area index in wetland areas in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal.
Wetland ecosystems are being modified and threatened due to anthropogenic activities and climate change, hence the urgent need for wetland restoration. Wetland rehabilitation is important in the reversal of these dire ...
