Online Panel Discussion: Climate Change and its Effects in Afghanistan 24.11.2020

 

Enjust Logo

In cooperation with the EnJust network, the Heinrich Böll Foundation invites to a digital panel discussion within the “Culture weeks Afghanistan – the other view”.

Tuesday, 24th November 6:00-8:00 pm.

Afghanistan is suffering for more than four decades from a devastating war that cannot be limited to the country’s boundaries, but that has regional and even international dimensions. Besides, the country is assessed as one of the most vulnerable countries affected by the adverse impact of climate change, in particular in relation to droughts and floods. Temperature is estimated to increase more than the global average, with warming expected to reach 1.7-2.3 Celsius by 2050. What impact will climate change have on the development of the country? With agriculture employing 60 % of the population, how will it affect the livelihood of the Afghan people? What are the possible implications for the future of any peace process in the country? And how is the relationship with the two neighbours – Iran and Pakistan – affected by water scarcity?

In the digital panel discussion, we will discuss the effects of climate change in Afghanistan with three experts:

  • Alias Wardak – Expert in the fields of water and energy, lecturer at Siegen University, works for 11 years as policy advisor and manager on infrastructure projects in Afghanistan
  • Benafsha Mirbacha – Expert in water diplomacy and regional cooperation, civil society activist with extensive experience in research and advocacy
  • Mujib Ahmad Azizi – Researcher at Afghanistan Research and Evaluation Unit, with particular focus on water management

The event will be moderated by:

  • Teresa Inclán – Heinrich Böll Foundation Schleswig-Holstein
  • and Prof. Florian Dünckmann – University of Kiel, Department of Geography

The panel discussion is going to take place in English.

Access: The zoom link will be made available some days before the event on the EnJust website.

Webinar: Societal Adaptation on Planet Earth: Past, Present... Future? (22.09.2020)

Veranstaltungsposter     Silja Klepp is invited to speak at this interdisciplinary webinar
    on societal adaptation organised by Stockhom University.

    As action on climate change continues to stall, people around
    the world are facing the unwelcome prospect of having to adapt
    to major environmental change. This webinar discusses how
    and indeed if this can happen, focusing in particular on the
    adaptability of local communities and socio-political structures.
    To facilitate the discussion, a number of speakers will present
    their own research on socio-environmental change, looking at
    an innovative range of historical and contemporary scenarios.
    However, these are just starting points and there will also be
    time for questions and discussion on the day. 
    Join us for an interdisciplinary discussion on the adaptability
    of local communities from historical and contemporary
    perspectives, and a debate on the role of knowledge and
    power in facilitating future adaptation.  
   
    Speakers: Prof. Poul Holm (TCD)
                        Prof. Silja Klepp (Kiel)
                        Dr. Anders Wästfelt
                        Dr. Fredrik C. Ljungkvist
                        Dr. Francesca Rosignoli
                        Dr. Joost de Moor
                        Dr. Eugene Costello (SU)

 

 

Time: Tuesday 22 Sep., 13.00–16.30 

This event will take place as a webinar on Zoom. The link to attend will be sent out to those who have registered via Eventbrite.

Online debate: Is adapting to climate change (really) our best choice? (Starting April 27th)

 

Showcard

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many people believe that adaptation to climate change is inevitable. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions alone is not enough. But not all scholars and practitioners are convinced, though. Some argue that adaptation is often too oriented on technical solutions, failing to address the real causes of vulnerability: marginalization, exclusion, racism, colonialism, and other injustices. An emphasis on adaptation helps to "depoliticize" risk reduction. Adaptation measures often lead to gentrification and displacement, and rarely benefit the poor and marginalized. Critics also lament that the "adaptation capacity" concept contributes to a neoliberal conception of risk reduction. Finally, sharing responsibility for climate response with individuals and communities (that are, or must become "adaptable") dilutes the accountability of political and economic elites regarding pollution, disaster risk creation, and environmental degradation.

 

And you, what do you think? Join the debate by sharing your thoughts and voting on the motion at https://oddebates.com/

 

Deborah Harford and Silja Klepp, two internationally recognized experts on the effects of climate change and adaptation, will defend each viewpoint over ten days:

Opening remarks – April 27
Rebuttal remarks – May 4
Closing remarks – May 8

The three best comments by students will be awarded prizes of up to $1000.

IMPORTANT: EnJust 2020 Workshop in Freiburg postponed

 

Blick vom Dorf Muara Sekalo in Richtung Nationalpark

It is with great disappointment that we need to inform you that this year’s International EnJust 2020 Workshop in Freiburg will not take place.

 

The situation with COVID-19 has changed dramatically over the past weeks, across Europe and the world. To ensure the safety of participants and avoid further uncertainty about travel bookings, the EnJust 2020 team and the EnJust Network coordinators have jointly decided to postpone the May 2020 event.

 

This is a huge disappointment to all involved. After months of preparatory work, we were very much looking forward to an exciting conference program, with lots of highly topical and thought-provoking contributions. Given the severity of the corona virus outbreak, however, we don’t see any other option than cancelling the event.

 

Our plan is to postpone the workshop by one year, so make sure to already reserve 19th to 21st May 2021 in your diaries! Those of you whose abstracts were accepted for this year’s workshop will be first in line to present the contributions next year instead. We will be in touch with you later this year with further details on this process and hope that many, if not most, of this year’s presenters will be able to join us in Freiburg in May 2021.

 

If you have already paid your registration fees, these will be reimbursed to you. We will contact you in the coming weeks in this regard.

 

If you need an official letter for insurance purposes stating that the event was cancelled by the organisers, please send an e-mail request to: enjust2020@geographie.uni-freiburg.de

 

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any other questions regarding the changed plans.

 

Stay well and safe and preserve some of your excitement about the workshop for 2021! We look forward to seeing you in Freiburg next year.

Sustainability requirements for natural rubber under the microscope

In the case study Deconstructing sustainable rubber production: contesting narratives in rural Sumatra, Fenna Otten, Jonas Hein, Hannah Bondy and Heiko Faust challenge the claims of large corporations.

Blick vom Dorf Muara Sekalo in Richtung Nationalpark

The growing demand for natural rubber is increasingly threatening biodiversity and forest ecosystems. Recently, the French Michelin Group started a cooperation with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to establish environmentally and socially sustainable ‘model’ rubber plantations in Sumatra and Kalimantan, Indonesia. The framing of Michelin’s tyre production as ‘eco-friendly’ and their purported ‘sustainable’ rubber cultivation contradict with statements by villagers living around Michelin’s plantation in Jambi Province, Sumatra, who are reporting environmental destruction and land tenure conflicts. Conceptually, we build on political ecology and critical human geography perspectives to identify conflicts and ambiguities related to sustainability claims, deforestation and dispossession. Empirically, we draw on qualitative research in a village affected by the plantation. We confront and deconstruct the discursive framing of sustainable rubber production with our empirical findings. We show how the plantation restricts access to land and instead of providing additional income, is actually limiting development opportunities.

POLLEN 2020 Session on Comparative perspective(s) on ontological conflicts in extractivism, conservation and development

Contested Natures: Power, Possibility, Prefiguration

Session organizers: Riccarda Flemmer (GIGA Hamburg), Jonas Hein (University of Kiel)

24-26 June 2020, Brighton

Ontological conflicts are defined as ‘conflicts involving different assumptions about “what exists”’ (Blaser 2013). Accordingly, ontological politics can be understood as struggles over the meaning and existence of different worlds. This kind of politics is especially virulent in conflicts over the extraction of natural resources (e.g. hydrocarbons, fisheries, forest products), over large-scale development projects (e.g. coastal reclamation projects, hydropower) and in the context of protected area implementation superimposing with indigenous people’s territories or peasant community lands. For political ecology, this is a major concern, because these projects are embedded into often unjust and asymmetric (post)colonial power relations.

In the context of participatory decision-making and inclusive planning exercises ontological conflicts become visible. At least in theory actors guiding these processes are forced to bring together western ideas of human-nature relationships and more holistic views which do not make this distinction and focus on spiritual meaning, collective identities and living beings (de la Cadena 2015; Escobar 2015). Participatory decision making and planning were established in international and national legal frameworks as a means to mediate between top-down imposed development projects promoted by the state and the interests of local populations. Most prominent are prior consultation processes and the principle of Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) for indigenous peoples or participatory land-use planning.

The aim of this panel is to make ontological politics visible and show how ontological conflicts are dealt with. Thereby, the panel will compare different empirical cases as well as methodological and conceptual approaches. We will bring together experiences from different world regions in order to bring them in comparative perspective and enable the identification of lessons learned.

We invite contributions on cases from the Global South and North. If you are interested to join our panel, please send us your abstract (max 250 words) including the title of the paper and your affiliation until 15 November 2019.

Publication: Climate Change and Migration Crises in Oceania
Christiane Fröhlich and Silja Klepp
 

Climate Change and Migration Crises in Oceania  “Climate-induced migration” is often perceived as potentially leading
  to political instability and violence, and thus, as critical. Oceania is
  considered a prime example for this assumed linear causality, since sea
  level rise and other effects of anthropogenic climate change are
  threatening to displace large numbers of people in the region. The
  policy brief scrutinises this perception by critically engaging with the
  securitization of climate-induced migration in the Pacific region, with a
  particular interest in who defines what a crisis is, when and where. Its
  central claim is that without contextualised knowledge of the relevant
  power structures which determine a) who defines what can be
  considered a (migration) crisis, b) how human mobility challenges
pre-established ideas of citizenship, belonging and national identity, and c) how climate change figures in these topical fields and political processes, we cannot fully understand the potential effects of climate-induced migration.

Loss & Hope: Contemporary debates in Environmental Anthropology

 

 

Workshop Invitation   Diagnoses of environmental loss – i.e. loss of bio-diversity and extinction of species, of
  soil and crop nutrients, loss through sea-level rise, the pollution of oceans and waterways,
  or the penetration of living forms by industrially produced chemical compounds –
  abound and inform much scholarly debate.

  This networking meeting for researchers focusing on environmental anthropology takes a
  productive tension between such recent diagnoses of loss and persistent hopes in
  betterment as starting point to open up our discussions: What does taking loss in relation
  to the environment seriously imply for anthropologists and how does this relate to projects
  that try to instill hope? To what extent  are these undertakings desirable or risky? What
  affective attachments to hope or loss prevail in our fields of inquiry?

Call for Papers: Migration and Conflict in a Global Warming Era: A Political Understanding of Climate Change

Special Editor: Prof. S. Klepp

 

Aus Politik und Zeitgeschichte: Wald  In recent years, we have learnt more about the far-reaching political effects of
  anthropogenic climate change, such as climate induced human mobility or
  climate-related conflicts. Securitization discourses and anti-migration policies are
  gaining strength, while empirical findings have shown that environmental migration
  entails mostly South–South movements, internal displacement, and trapped populations.
  Conflicts linked to climate change are mostly non-violent, and climate change effects are
  inseparable from socio–political and economic dynamics. This Special Issue aims to
  draw attention to underrepresented research perspectives and to second order effects
  of the political dimensions of climate change.

  adaptation discourses, policies, and practices from a multidisciplinary
  perspective. Drawing on examples from countries including Colombia,
  Mexico, Canada,  Germany, Russia, Tanzania, Indonesia, and the Pacific
  Islands, the chapters describe how adaptation measures are interpreted,
  transformed,and implemented at grassroots level and how these measures
  are changing or interfering with power relations, legal pluralism and local
  (ecological) knowledge. As a whole, the book challenges established
  perspectives of climate change adaptation by taking into account issues
  of cultural diversity, environmental justice and human rights, as well as
  feminist or intersectional approaches. This innovative approach allows for
  analyses of the new configurations of knowledge and power that are evolving
  in the name of climate change adaptation.
