Amazoning Climate Governance

Date, time: 7. June 2021, 15.00-16.00

Venue: Zoom 



There is a paradox in climate governance. While at the global level there is an emerging governance framework to protect the environment, we do not know what this regime becomes and does when it travels to regional, sub regional and local levels.

How does it translate into governance practices on the ground—in interaction with a myriad of domestic regulations and local initiatives, and with bureaucratic structures and political bodies at different levels? How is it shaped by local power- and conflict dynamics – and how does it affect them? And to what extent are the goals that motivated the global regime achieved?

Our Amazoning C-gov project aims to investigate the multilevel translation of global norms to prevent deforestation into different parts of the Amazon. We will discuss our interest to advance the scholarship on how the global climate governance regime translates into local regulations and practices – in interaction with other regulations, political priorities, power-relations and conflict dynamics – and to what effects.
