Research group Prof. Jessica Budds - Development Geography and Environmental Governance

Our group explores processes of socio-ecological change and how they shape the lives, livelihoods, landscapes, and identities of local people, primarily but not exclusively in the Global South.  This covers a broad range of issues including water security, adaptation to climate change, natural resource based industries, and urban environments.  We are particularly interested in understanding how socio-ecological change is shaped by political and/or economic power relations at different spatial and temporal scales, as well as how the forms that socio-ecological change takes may consolidate existing power structures and discourses.
