Environmental Policy & Governance Group
We are a research group in the Geography Department of the University of Calgary, led by Dr. Conny Davidsen, focusing on environmental governance dynamics and changing policies at the human-environment interface, often from political ecology or related perspectives. This particularly addresses local to global interests at the policy nexus between forests, climate, energy, and carbon, including sustainable resource management, local extraction conflicts, indigenous land and resource rights. Geographical focus is currently on South America, Western Canada, and South Asia. Click for more info on our group members, publications and current events and activities.
