Movimientos Sociales. Sociedad, Política y Mercados en la Era Global

August 27, 2019

I had the opportunity to participate in a panel discussion at the Instituto de Investigaciones Sociales in Mexico City about my postdoctoral study, as a Fulbright-Garcia Robles U.S. Scholar, on carbon accounting in Mexican communities with forestry enterprises. I evaluated carbon sequestration using a socio-ecological systems lens to consider out-migration as a type of carbon leakage that should be considered for carbon payments. Thanks Dr. Aguilar for inviting me to join the panel!

Captura de carbono en sistemas socio-ambientales: el costo de abandonar la autosuficiencia.

Check out the results from my postdoctoral studies at the Insituto de Investigaciones Sociales in Mexico City. I speak about the impacts of climate change and changing local economies on Ejidos and Comunidades Agrarias. Additionally, globalization and changing local lifestyles are leading to higher per-capita emissions which challenge mitigation goals of carbon sequestration projects.
