[演講公告]Resilient socio-ecological systems and external development interventions: How do indigenous and local communities cope with REDD+?

Thursday, November 30, 2017, 10:30 - 12:00
Location Room 202, the Geography Department Building, NTU
講者: Dr. Mucahid Bayrak
演講大綱:

Global investment in forest ecosystems in order to combat global climate change has led to the establishment of the Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation programme (REDD+), a multilateral development intervention. This is needed as not only does deforestation contribute to one-fifth of global CO2 emissions, but (tropical) forest are also increasingly more vulnerable to the negative effects of global climate change. How an external development intervention interacts with local ecosystems and communities, on the other hand, remains under-researched. The purpose of this study is to re-conceptualize theories on resilience, traditional ecological knowledge and socio-ecological systems (SES) in order to unravel the key factors and drivers of the success or failure of REDD+ among local communities in Vietnam’s Central Highlands. My study proposes an applied SES framework which is used to analyse the dynamics of REDD+ implementation in two communes in Vietnam – the former involved in an UN-REDD programme and the latter involved in a project of Fauna & Flora International (FFI). The overarching question of this study is whether within the context of an external development intervention and climate change, relevant local actors are able to move into the ‘right’ direction to achieve inclusive livelihood development while managing their forest commons and carbon sinks in a sustainable manner.
