Session Abstract

How do local people resist resource grabs, in organized forms or through everyday, less-visible actions? How does climate change mitigation intensify conflict? This workshop explores these questions, among others, through a participatory discussion on the impacts of and responses to resource grabbing (land, water, fisheries, minerals) and green grabbing (climate change mitigation and adaptation). The workshop will present short reflections from researchers and activists about how agricultural, fisheries and climate change mitigation policies and regulations contribute to resource and green grabbing, their impacts on the ground, and the responses from local people, as well as the broader implications for solidarity-building between affected groups and contemporary struggles for social and environmental justice. This will be followed by an open discussion with all workshop participants on common themes that emerge from these reflections.
