Introduction
Louise Emily Carver is a human geographer and political ecologist whose research and work explores how value is mediated through policy and knowledge-practices. Her empirical and ethnographic research explores the socio-technical worlds of green and blue economies using feminist perspectives attending to intersections with biodiversity conservation, food economies and participative justice. Louise works in ways that try to go beyond critique while tracing existing geographies of affirmation.

This paper describes and analyses applied practices creating numerical equivalence between sites of development impact and proposed conservation offset sites in the new conservation technology of biodiversity offsetting. Application of biodiversity offsetting metrics in development impact and mitigation assessments is considered to standardize biod...

Article
Full-text available
Policies for biodiversity no net loss and net gain underwrite narratives for green growth through advancing reparative logics to ongoing habitat impacts. By enabling offsetting practices that risk accommodating rather than averting land change developments, net principles are said to resemble modes of ‘accumulation by environmental restoration’. Bi...

An essay companion to Territorial Agency's exhibition Oceans in Transformation positioning labour, both human and the so-called "work of nature" through the lens of social metabolism to renewed interests in extracting value from the oceans. Ocean labor and ocean work entail different stories and ways of knowing, from abstract theories of value to v...

Almanac for the Beyond is an edited volume of experimental eco-criticism. Providing a twist on the almanac tradition, this collection of essays, graphs, poems, art works, miscellaneous references, and more critiques the limits of the petroculture imagination, honors the rhythms of nature, and builds capacity to attend to contemporary environmental...
Article
The links between rapid population growth and concerns regarding climate change have received little attention. Some commentators have argued that slowing population growth is necessary to reduce further rises in carbon emissions. Others have objected that this would give rise to dehumanizing "population control" programmes in developing countries....

At the Leverhulme Centre for the Study of Value (LCSV, http://the studyofvalue.org), we seek to understand how new and competing ways of valuing social and environmental harm and care present both challenges and opportunities in a rapidly changing world. Our research explores value in a variety of social and environmental contexts, from the valuation of human life and development in the public and private sectors to the values being created in new markets for carbon, biodiversity, land and water. Founded in 2012 by Professor Sarah Bracking with the support of the Leverhulme Trust, LCSV supports an interdisciplinary and international team of researchers. The LCSV Working Paper Series (http://thestudyofvalue.org/publications/) aims to foster the rapid distribution of research findings and work in progress by researchers, post-graduate students and associates of LCSV.
