Collective Land Governance for a Changing Climate with Linda Shi - Shareable

Collective Land Governance for a Changing Climate with Linda Shi



Feb 23, 2022 - Feb 23, 2022


Human civilization is headed towards a collision between rapidly changing conditions of land under climate change and static institutions governing land and property. Contemporary development models are predicated on Western European land ethics, property rights regimes, and land policies that evolved during a period of relative climatological and geological stability on Earth. Nevertheless, much as there are “varieties of capitalism”, a variety of land governance systems exist around the world. This talk shares examples of collective land governance that have enabled communities to adapt to economic and environmental shocks. It raises the possibilities of expanding collective land ownership to respond to the climate challenge. Register to join the event here.
