DSA Environment, Natural Resources and Climate Change Study group
The ENRCC group was formed in 2015 and welcomes a broad range of interests related to the environment and development. These may include a focus on different types of renewable natural resources (water, forests, fisheries, etc.), different analytical perspectives (political economy, political ecology, institutional, common property theory, governance etc.), a concern with the relationships between poverty and the environment and analyses of climate change and development.
Areas of activity include:
- Workshops and seminars
- Panel proposals to the DSA Conference
- Sharing of conference and workshop calls
- Joint writing and development of research proposals
Those interested in getting involved in the group should contact the group convenor with contact information and information on their areas of interest.

New book from members of the Environment, Natural Resources and Climate Change study group
The ENRCC is delighted to note that an edited volume with chapters by members of the study group has recently been published by Routledge, co-branded by the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (cdkn.org). The genesis of ‘Making Climate Compatible Development Happen’ began with a panel session at the DSA conference in 2013, at which several of the contributors to the volume presented. Edited by Fiona Nunan, of the University of Birmingham, and convenor of the ENRCC, the study group hopes this is the first of many to come from collaboration within the group.
