Talk Examines Climate Change in the Developing World

Thursday Sep 8, 2011 3:00 PM | Conference Room, 2nd Floor, Benson Library

The Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies presents a talk by Diana Liverman, Co-Director of the Institute of the Environment at the University of Arizona, titled "Governing Climate Change: Perspectiveonand from Latin America."

This talk will discuss the governance of carbon offsets and the emerging challenges of governing international adaptation to climate change in the developing world.  Taking a broadly defined political ecology perspective, the analysis will range from the international climate negotiations to small communities in Latin America, and from material greenhouse gas reductions and climate risks to the political economy of offsets and adaptation as well as the agency of the people who create offsets and implement adaptation in their households.

The event is free and open to the public. Limited space available, first come first served.
