“Climate proofing the Sahel: the knowledge politics surrounding the causation of impoverishment”

Matt Turner is a professor of Geography at University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research program is broadly is concerned with the relationship between social and environmental change in dryland areas of world. Over the past decade, he has focused on understanding the root causes of the agropastoral transitions occurring in dryland West Africa (from intrahousehold to national social scales) and the environmental implications of these transitions. His work contributes to theoretical literatures of political ecology; political institutions and resource management; and the management implications of nonequilibrium ecological dynamics.

This event is part of the Duck Family Colloquium series. The Center for Environmental Politics organizes a monthly colloquium series on environmental politics, policy, and governance. This series is made possible by the generous support of Gary and Susan Duck, UW alumni and long-standing benefactors of the department. Susan passed away in December 2015 after a prolonged illness. We miss her a lot.
