This study utilized a survey methodology to collect data from the whole population of Rivers state. A total of 318 people from each of the three senatorial districts filled out the survey, and the researchers used the Taro Yamane formula to determine that a sample size of 400 was appropriate. With a mean criteria of 3.0, the statistical tools of the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) were used to analyze the study's research topics. Reviewing the effects of renewable energy on long-term economic growth in Rivers State, we find that it helps with energy efficiency, keeps socioeconomic development going, lowers emissions of greenhouse gases, air pollution, and climate change, and raises living standards. Lack of renewable energy policy implementation, insufficient investor attraction mechanisms, insufficient technology, insufficient renewable energy developers, insufficient credit facilities accessible to renewable energy developers, and low renewable energy awareness are all mentioned as obstacles to the state of Rivers, Nigeria's renewable energy sector in the study. Sustainable economic development can be achieved through the use of renewable energy, according to the study. The researchers urged the government and policymakers in Rivers State, Nigeria, to train more renewable energy developers, establish credit facilities and an enabling environment for the exploitation of renewable energy, allocate funds, and make renewable energy policy.</p> Nathan Udoinyang, Favour Chizoba Sunday, Reuben Daniel Copyright (c) 2024 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://www.jspae.com/index.php/jeee/article/view/322 Wed, 21 Feb 2024 00:00:00 +0000 The Influence of Agriculture, Renewable Energy, International Trade, and Economic Growth on India's Environmental Sustainability https://www.jspae.com/index.php/jeee/article/view/324 <p>Agriculture significantly contributes to the economic growth of many developing nations, while energy policies aimed at combating climate change play a crucial role in bolstering this growth. This paper examines the relationship between agriculture, renewable energy, trade openness, and economic growth on carbon dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>) emissions in India from 1965 to 2022. The unit root tests confirmed the stationarity of the data, and the autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) bound testing confirmed a long-run relationship among variables. The results of the ARDL long-run elasticities indicate that a 1% increase in agriculture productivity and trade openness led to a respective increase in CO<sub>2</sub> emissions of 0.42% and 0.20%, respectively. In addition, a slight increase in usage of renewable energy was found to have a positive impact on reducing CO<sub>2</sub> emissions, while economic growth also contributed to a small decrease in emissions. The findings confirmed the validity of the environment Kuznets curve (EKC) alongside the pollution haven hypothesis in the context of India. The findings suggest that implementing renewable energy usage, low-carbon economy, and trade reforms, along with robust environmental policies that minimize CO<sub>2</sub> emissions, can contribute to the development of the agriculture sector and green economy.</p> Asif Raihan, Tipon Tanchangya, Junaid Rahman, Mohammad Ridwan Copyright (c) 2024 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://www.jspae.com/index.php/jeee/article/view/324 Wed, 21 Feb 2024 00:00:00 +0000 The long-term health impacts of repeated flood events: A Review https://www.jspae.com/index.php/jeee/article/view/316 <p>Global flood events over the last thirty years have affected over 2.8 billion people and claimed an astounding 200,000 lives. Flood victims experience long-lasting effects on their physical and mental well-being that last for an uncertain amount of time after the incident. Secondary stressors that are indirectly related to the flood event have the capacity to worsen and prolong the health effects on impacted individuals and communities, even after the initial aftermath. These secondary stressors include social stressors like extended isolation from flooding and economic difficulties like income loss. Notably, there is a significant research vacuum regarding the effects of recurrent flooding and how it affects people's vulnerability to these secondary stressors. This thorough analysis explores research on periodic flooding, highlighting the secondary stressors that result from these occurrences. It also examines the study populations' awareness, readiness, and resilience in order to estimate the possible effects of secondary stressors on these communities. The review's conclusions highlight the substantial effects that secondary stressors in the economic, social, and psychological domains have on communities in both developed and developing countries, both rural and urban. Even though the majority of communities are fundamentally aware of the risk of flooding, many residents do not take this risk seriously, which leads to a lack of proactive measures. Research has indicated that there is greater community resilience in developing country urban and rural areas as well as in developed country rural areas. Subsequent investigations ought to thoroughly examine the various secondary stressors that impact communities and investigate tactics to mitigate their effects, with the ultimate goal of augmenting community resilience.</p> Sadaf Rina Khushi, Abdul Rasool Khoso, Shahnaz Bhutto, Arshad Ali Narejo Copyright (c) 2024 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://www.jspae.com/index.php/jeee/article/view/316 Sat, 17 Feb 2024 00:00:00 +0000
