New research projects at LUCSUS: climate change, flying and sanitation

The disproportionate impacts of climate change on vulnerable groups, art for the SDG:s, and political and personal stories about flying and climate change. This is the focus of three LUCSUS projects that recently received funding from Formas.

Other projects include research on mobilisation for the SDG:s, and an exploration of love in relation to land and place in Zimbabwe. 

An especially large grant was awarded to the LUCSUS project investigating impacts of climate change on vulnerable groups. The grant was awarded in a new Formas category calling for research that promotes new ways to think about policy in relation to social transformation and innovative climate models and methods.

– The fact that the funded projects are so diverse shows that our research is timely and has the potential to have societal impact. Sustainability challenges need to be explored through a multitude of lenses and approaches, and these projects are a way of doing that, says Director Emily Boyd.

LUCSUS researchers also received funding for projects led by other departments at Lund University, and organisations such as the Stockholm Environment Institute. They include research on sanitation in Kenya, how nature is effected by peace building processes, and negative emissions.
