A behavioral rebound effect

Abstract Pro-environmental behaviors are an important avenue for mitigating environmental impacts. Technological improvements are also a vital tool for reducing environmental damage from consumption. However, their benefits are partially offset by the direct rebound effect, whereby a consumer rationally responds…

Economic value of Urban Heat Island (UHI) mitigation: a case study.

Introduction The UHI effect can be mitigated by applying elements of WSUD, for example, lining large trees along suburban streets, irrigating public open space with fit-for-purpose water, and restoring wetlands. Increasingly, there are more investments in urban greening. These investments…

Urbanization and Stormwater Management Effects on Catchment-scale Hydrology (IECA Australian Conference and Stormwater Queensland Conference presentation)

Discussion In theory it is possible to return predevelopment hydrology if SCM network, perfectly mitigate all effects of urbanisation. In practice the goal of stormwater management which is broadly around restoring the predevelopment hydrology is rarely achieved. Most studies detected…

Promoting Spillover: How Past Behaviors Increase Environmental Intentions by Cueing Self-Perceptions

Abstract Behavioral spillover theory has potential for promoting meaningful behaviour change. Spillover occurs when engagement in environmental behaviors affects the adoption of other environmental behaviors. By testing a new experimental model of spillover, this article is the first to concurrently…
