    20 November 2019
    Paper

    Northern African countries are key suppliers of natural resources to the global economy, from large- scale oil and gas extraction in Algeria and Tunisia, to phosphate mining in Tunisia and Morocco, to water-intensive agribusiness paired with tourism in Morocco and Tunisia. The commodification of nature and privatisation of resources entailed in these projects has led to serious environmental damages, and forced these countries into a subservient position in the global economy, sustaining and deepening global inequalities.

    Paper

    Dominant approaches to climate change mitigation are putting new pressures on small farmers and village dwellers, justifying dispossession by powerful actors who cast villagers' traditional ways of life as ecologically destructive or economically inefficient. In order to address the twin challenges of agrarian justice and climate justice, it is critical to understand the way new conflicts and initiatives intersect with old conflicts and the way they are compounded by undemocratic settings, and inequality and division along fault-lines of gender, ethnicity, class, and generation.

    Article

    Deshalb ist die Interpretation des Klimawandels in ein Sicherheitsproblem so irritierend. Sie schafft eine doppelt Ungerechtigkeit. Nicht nur leiden diejenigen, die am wenigsten mit der Verursachung des Klimawandels zu tun haben, am meisten von den Folgen des Klimawandels, sondern sie werden nun auch noch angesichts dieser klimatischen Auswirkungen mit Sicherheitreaktionen konfrontiert.

    Convertir el cambio climático en un problema de seguridad crea una doble injusticia.

    In December 2015, 195 countries gathered in Paris and adopted the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate deal.

    Article

    The Paris COP21 talks failed to deliver a meaningful result, judged from either a scientific or social justice point-of-view.

    Los ejecutivos empresariales y los negacionistas que se movilizan en contra de acuerdos internacionales firmes sobre el cambio climático han sido, justamente, el foco de atención de muchas personas preocupadas por la crisis climática.

    Report

    Corporate executives and climate skeptics that mobilise against strong international climate change agreements have rightly been the focus of attention of many people concerned about the climate crisis. But another group of elites—those who actually believe in climate change —may paradoxically have done more to block effective solutions to the crisis.

    With some 800 bases around the globe, it is no surprise that the U.S. military is the world's biggest consumer of petroleum. What is perhaps more surprising is that this so-called carbon bootprint has been completely exempted from international climate agreements, including the one currently being finalized at COP21 Paris Climate Change Conference.
