This working paper was prepared for presentation at the CAPRi Workshop on Collective Action, Property Rights, and Conflict in Natural Resources Management. The present version has not undergone review. 1 A central challenge of managing natural resources in post-conflict settings is identifying if and how resources are linked to social identities or...
Article
Full-text available
The potential of Clean Development Mechanism Afforestation and Reforestation (CDM A/R) projects to contribute to climate change mitigation and sustainable development is widely recognized. Yet, problems with the design and implementation of CDM A/R projects have limited analyses of project outcomes. In fact, of the nearly 1400 registered CDM projec...
Thesis
Full-text available
This dissertation contributes to the understanding of how the social embeddedness of property impacts post-conflict natural resource management and peacebuilding. While the idea of property as rights is naturalized in many current discourses, working with this idea that property is merely rights can cause unanticipated problems. This is especially...
Article
Full-text available
The application of technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, blockchain, cellular agriculture, and big data analytics to food systems has been described as a digital agricultural revolution with the potential to increase food security and reduce agriculture’s environmental footprint. Yet, the scientific evidence informing how these te...
Article
Background There is recognition that a reduction of consumer demand for foods that have large environmental footprints is necessary. Recent innovations in food production technologies (“food frontiers”) claim to offer gains in ecological sustainability and global food security, thereby transitioning our food system toward a more sustainable future....
Article
Full-text available
Climate change will create warmer temperatures, greater precipitation, and longer growing seasons in northern latitudes making agriculture increasingly possible in boreal regions. To assess the potential of any such expansion, this paper provides a first-order approximation of how much land could become suitable for four staple crops (corn, potato,...
Article
Full-text available
In recent years, Smart Farming (SF) and Precision Agriculture (PA) have attracted attention from both the agriculture industry as well as the research community. Altogether, SF and PA aim to help farmers use inputs (such as fertilizers and pesticides) more efficiently through using Internet of Things (IoT) devices, but in doing so, they create new...
Article
We review the current and potential uses of Geographic Information Software (GIS) and “spatial thinking” for understanding body disposal behaviour in times of mass fatalities, particularly armed conflict contexts. The review includes observations made by the authors during the course of their academic research and professional consulting on the use...
Presentation
Full-text available
An invited contribution, published as part of the Open Education Consortium’s Year of Open Perspectives.
Chapter
Full-text available
In this contribution, three open textbook authors outline the motivations and mechanics of three successful yet different approaches to writing open textbooks. These approaches include textbook creation and adaptation projects, individual and collaborative efforts, and traditional timeline and compressed " sprint " models. Following these cases, th...
Book
United the voices of twenty-two experts from academic, government, and civil sectors who study and help search for missing persons in Canada and internationally, Derek Congram's new collection responds to growing public awareness of persons who have disappeared due to armed conflict, repressive regimes, criminal behaviour, and racist and colonial p...
Chapter
Debates over British Columbia’s Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) amalgamate competing discourses that influence public perceptions of the nature of and solutions to problems confronting agricultural lands. These debates over agricultural lands involve disputes over values, ideologies, and material interests (Demeritt 1995; Bunce 1998; Dixon & Hapke...
Book
Full-text available
This first year Geography textbook takes a holistic approach to Geography by incorporating elements of physical, human and regional geography, as well as bringing in methods and perspectives from spatial information science.. This textbook applies a fundamental geographical approach to understanding our globally changing world by looking at local p...
Article
Full-text available
In this article, I address whether activities meant to improve land tenure security may have supported or undermined peacebuilding during the postwar stabilization and transition period of 2005–2008. In 2005, the population of Aceh began recovery from both a 29-year separatist war and the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. Property and tenure systems were...
Article
Paraty Green Map is a global social responsibility service learning project that promotes sustainable tourism development in the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest. This project is based on the development of public-private partnerships including universities, the businesses, citizens, and local governments in the United States and Brazil and the United...
Conference Paper
Clarifying rights and responsibilities of local resource tenure regimes is essential for establishing ecosystem service payments. While there are good arguments for establishing a uniform national legal code for land, there are fundamental difficulties (sometimes incompatibilities) in transitioning informal, local tenure regimes to national, statut...
Article
Full-text available
Conservation and development projects in Africa are now attempting to implement participatory approaches to protected area management. These approaches remedy many past sources of conflict between local communities and conservation projects, but also potentially cause as many problems as they remedy when user groups are not accurately defined. Lack...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The goal of this study is to build up a precise and reliable database on Mbororo herdsmen’s uses of natural resources in a proposed conservation area in the Tchabal MbaboDodeo region. The geographic focus of this study, therefore, is located in the underdeveloped and sparsely populated area between the Tchabal Mbabo cliffs and Dodeo village in the...
