Literature Review: Human Factors problem for Environment

This “Ten Problems for Environment in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. policies, 
  2. assessment,
  3. energy efficiency,
  4. economics,
  5. natural resources,
  6. public involvement,
  7. ecosystems,
  8. human factors,
  9. urban and rural,
  10. pollution.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

8 Human Factors

THE PROBLEM — It is time to look at what impact the humans are having on the environment as a result of the rapidly changing technology. The implementation of the sustainable development model requires, most of all, the engagement of the human factor. Citizen science is also becoming relevant, thanks to the diffusion of internet technologies and widespread standardized protocols.

CONCLUSIONS — There is still not enough focus on the human factor in industry, that can not only impact production and output but also create a negative impact on the environment. Eco-oriented management is performed exclusively by employees with positive attitudes towards the environment, green competencies, and responsible for the environmental consequences of their actions. The Schultz scale would be an excellent choice for any study of general environmental attitudes. It is widely unclear which factors drive the success of citizen science activities. Though environmentally focused decision support literature is rich in knowledge on modelling and system design, the limited interest of challenges facing decision-making are concerning. The mutual influence between subsystems, the relationship between mutual constraints, and the sustainable development capacity of the agro-ecosystem need to be further explored. In Ukraine, higher education is a priority both for employees and agricultural enterprises. Organization culture is the most influencing behavioral factor in Bangladesh, followed by commitment from higher authority. Gardeners continuously configure their environments to accommodate their preferences for sociality. Biospheric and egoistic concerns are positively, while materialism is negatively related to environmental philanthropic behavior.
