Below are proceedings of the LCEDN-University of Strathclyde 8th Annual Conference entitled 'Access and Waste: the Two Sides of the Low Carbon Coin'.
The Conference was held at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, from 1st-3rd May 2019. This two-day conference employed a social systems approach to the dilemma of energy access and the resultant issue of waste. The workshops and participatory sessions across both days focused on how to enhance effective energy access across the Global South (whilst smoothing the path to low carbon transitions) and at the same time address the series of challenges linking access to waste.
Please note: speakers' presentations will continue to be added on a rolling basis as files/permissions are received. If you participated as a speaker, and haven't already provided your file for publishing below, please email your file to LCEDN@lboro.ac.uk
