This seminar will be an opportunity to deepen and consolidate the various issues raised in the initial contributions proposed for the collective work. Participants will have the opportunity to explore in depth the fundamental issues related to citizen participation in land governance, with a focus on the specific challenges faced in Africa. In-depth discussions will analyze the root causes of land problems, identify gaps in existing public policies, and formulate concrete proposals for effective reforms.

NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) has opened a new open, online webinar series: Earth Observations for Humanitarian Applications. Refugees, internally displaced people (IDPs), and other displaced populations are made more vulnerable to climate change impacts due to their socio-political marginalization. This three-part, intermediate training presents concrete strategies for mapping localized climate conditions with risks faced by refugee and IDP communities around the world.

The training will focus on flood risk assessments and specific challenges for assessing flood risk in refugee and IDP camps; gauging long-term heat stress in refugee camps and the challenges with decision making surrounding heat risk; and monitoring drought effects on agricultural landscapes in refugee settings using Earth observations (EO) to explore the correlations between anomalies in crop productivity and weather-based factors

Building on the successful collaboration in last year’s Annual Conference, the IoS Fair Transitions Platform (UU) and LANDac are pleased to launch this Call for a second joint Conference, which will have a somewhat different set-up from what you are used to and end with a Summit. We welcome your suggestions for panel sessions and round tables for the first two days. Building on your input, we will conclude on the last day with an experiment of democracy – a more-than human Summit. There will be limited hybrid options for participation in the Conference and the Summit.

Les pays du Sud connaissent des processus forts d’exclusion foncière et d’exposition à des risques environnementaux, souvent liés à des logiques extractivistes particulièrement brutales. Face à ces situations, on observe une mobilisation croissante des concepts de justice socio-spatiale et environnementale dans les travaux de recherche visant à les décrire et à analyser les différentes formes de résistance ou de contestation qu’elles suscitent. Mais ces concepts reposent implicitement ou explicitement sur des théories de l’État et de la citoyenneté supposées universelles. Le colloque a pour objectif de confronter ces concepts aux relations sociales spécifiques entre l’Etat et les citoyens, dans différents contextes du Sud global.
