At F7 we try to keep up with relevant knowledge production and from time to time have the fortune of being invited to contribute hereto.
As of recently we have participated in various climate change networks and initiatives – in particular the “Social Dimensions of Climate Change in Latin America and the Caribbean Initiative” with Governments, research institutions and civil society of the LAC Region – lead by the World Bank.
This has resulted in the release of major publications
- a book on Indigenous Peoples in a Changing Climate;
- an article presented at the UNFCCC Meeting in Barcelona 2-7 Nov. 2009 and for the COP15 in Copenhagen
- and an article in the Danish Journal on International Development “The New World” – also released prior to COP15.
The book and both articles are based on field work in 5 countries in the major eco-geografical regions of the LAC.
Also in 2009 we were asked to develop a conceptual framework and a monitoring kit for the understanding of environmental issues of territorial development for the Latin American Research Group on Rural Development. RIMISP, based in Santiago de Chile.
