The Predictive Value of Resource Defence Theory in Understanding Resource User Responses to Climatic Variability: Implications for the Viability of Institutions in a Resource Dependent Context

The Predictive Value of Resource Defence Theory in Understanding Resource User Responses to Climatic Variability: Implications for the Viability of Institutions in a Resource Dependent Context

Source: Human Ecology: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2016

Author(s): Jane Addison

Countries: China, Mongolia

Topics: Climate Change, Governance, Livelihoods, Renewable Resources

Added: 06/08/2017

 

The ability of governance to achieve sustained environmental aims is a function of the scaling ‘fit’ between natural resources and the social domain. Resource defence theory postulates that resource availability and predictability are important attributes affecting territoriality and the evolution and viability of institutions governing access to a given natural...

Evolving Discourses on Water Resource Management and Climate Change in the Equatorial Nile Basin

Evolving Discourses on Water Resource Management and Climate Change in the Equatorial Nile Basin

Source: The Journal of Environment & Development, 2017

Author(s): Nina Hissen, Declan Conway, Marisa C. Goulden

Topics: Climate Change, Conflict Causes, Livelihoods, Renewable Resources

Added: 31/07/2017

 

Transboundary water resources management in the Equatorial Nile Basin (EQNB) is a politically contested issue. There is a growing body of literature examining water-related discourses which identifies the ability of powerful actors and institutions to influence policy. Concern about the effects of future climate change has featured strongly in research...

Multiple Stressors, Food System Vulnerability and Food Insecurity in Humla, Nepal

Multiple Stressors, Food System Vulnerability and Food Insecurity in Humla, Nepal

Source: Regional Environmental Change, 2017

Author(s): Yograj Gautam and Peter Andersen

Countries: Nepal

Topics: Climate Change, Conflict Causes, Renewable Resources

Added: 31/07/2017

 

As the impacts of climate change (CC) have become apparent, Nepal has recently implemented a number of programs emphasizing climate sensitive resource management and development interventions. However, the attribution of vulnerability to CC alone may misdirect these programs because it is only one of multiple factors that affect rural livelihoods....

Climate Risk and Food Security in Mali: A Historical Perspective on Adaptation

Climate Risk and Food Security in Mali: A Historical Perspective on Adaptation

Source: Earth's Future, 2017

Author(s): Alessandra Giannini, P. Krishna Krishnamurthy, Rémi Cousin, Naouar Labidi, and Richard J. Choularton

Countries: Mali

Topics: Climate Change, Conflict Causes, Livelihoods, Renewable Resources

Added: 31/07/2017

 

We combine socioeconomic data from a large-scale household survey with historical climate data to map the climate sensitivity of availability and access dimensions of food security in Mali, and infer the ways in which at-risk communities may have been impacted by persistent climatic shift. Thirty years after 1982–1984, the period...

Current and Future Challenges Facing Transboundary River Basin Management

Current and Future Challenges Facing Transboundary River Basin Management

Source: Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Climate Change, 2013

Author(s): Mark Zeitoun, Marisa Goulden, and David Tickner

Topics: Climate Change, Conflict Causes, Conflict Prevention, Livelihoods, Renewable Resources

Added: 31/07/2017

 

This review employs academic and policy literature to gage the relative importance and concerns associated with the main challenges facing the management of transboundary river basins: increasing pressures; management and policy that has not kept pace with a broadened set of actors; the influence of climate change; and the politics...

Helping the Palestinian Territory Adapt to Climate Change

Helping the Palestinian Territory Adapt to Climate Change

Source: London School of Economics, 2014

Author(s): Michael Mason

Countries: Palestine

Topics: Climate Change, Programming, Renewable Resources

Added: 31/07/2017

 

Significant climate change is forecast for the Middle East by the end of this century, leading to greater water scarcity and falling agricultural productivity. Without pre-emptive action, the effects will be particularly severe in the occupied Palestinian territory, where the people — and the area's environmental systems — are already...

Climate Change, Securitisation and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Climate Change, Securitisation and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Source: The Geographical Journal, 2013

Author(s): Michael Mason

Countries: Israel, Palestine

Topics: Basic Services, Climate Change, Livelihoods, Renewable Resources

Added: 31/07/2017

 

Securitisation theory serves as a useful corrective to the ‘climate determinism’ evident in mainstream debates on the security effects of climate change, but there are divergences within this approach over what constitutes ‘successful’ securitisation. For the Copenhagen School, climate change has not been securitised because relevant state actors do not...

A Main Driver or an Intermediate Variable? Climate Change, Water and Security in the Middle East

A Main Driver or an Intermediate Variable? Climate Change, Water and Security in the Middle East

Source: Global Environmental Change, 2017

Author(s): Eran Feitelsona and Amit Tubi

Topics: Climate Change, Conflict Causes, Conflict Prevention, Renewable Resources

Added: 31/07/2017

 

The nexus between climate change and violent conflict is at the center of intensifying political and academic debate. Yet research on the extent and strength of this relationship remains inconclusive and much of the literature is largely empirical, lacking a sufficient theoretical underpinning. This study advances a conceptual framework linking...
