Session Abstract

Digitalization increasingly affects sustainable global development. Farming apps, GPS-controlled fishing, and forest-monitoring drones are examples of how the ‘digital’ extends into the realm of natural resources. Governments and development actors have embraced these technologies as solutions to global resource scarcity and environmental problems. Yet, digitalization is likely to fundamentally re-shape labour and property related to natural resources, raising concerns about social justice. This panel investigates the implications for those depending on natural resources for their livelihoods (e.g. farmers, fishermen). It aims to provide an interesting (non-urban) angle to debates on automation, algorithmic governance, labour and commodification of data and nature.
