Klimapolitik und der globale Süden

Wir arbeiten zur Politik des Klimawandels. Dabei untersuchen wir, wie Länder mit niedrigem und mittlerem Einkommen kohlenstoffärmere Pfade einschlagen können, ohne die wirtschaftliche Entwicklung sowie die Armutsbekämpfung zu gefährden, und welche Rolle Länder des Globalen Südens in internationalen Klimaverhandlungen einnehmen.

    Just Transition or Green Grabbing?

    Large-scale commercial agriculture continues to replace agricultural practices of indigenous peoples (IPs), pastoralists, and smallholder farmers worldwide. To avoid “green grabbing” but achieve a “just transition” the side event will raise awareness for the scale of the problem, present evidence about the contribution of these communities in tackling climate change, highlight lessons learned from the “global land rush” and discuss the role of strengthening international frameworks and land tenure rights.

    Climate Obstruction and Foreign Policy in Comparative Perspective

    The fight against climate change continues to be hindered by campaigns of corporate and other actors who seek to prevent global and/or national action on climate change. This research group is set up to a joint and comparative research agenda on climate obstruction in and across key Global South countries. The lead institutions are the GIGA and the Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (UERJ).

    Leibniz Research Network "Integrated Earth System Research" (iESF)

    Humanity is increasingly influencing the Earth system that has evolved over millions of years. Visible signs of this 'Anthropocene' are global warming, pollution of the oceans and the decline in biodiversity. In the coming years, therefore, societal decisions of civilization-historical significance will have to be made. A fundamental question is: How can the Earth system be ecologically stabilized in such a way that well-being, prosperity, justice, peace and security for all people are secured or even achieved?

    SAGE-Centre: Sustainable Adaptation to Global Change in the Middle East

    In dealing with climate change, scientific cooperation between emerging countries and industrialised nations is of particular importance. The GIGA is part of the Climate and Environment Centre SAGE – one of four global centres on the topic, funded by the German Academic Exchange Service and the Federal Foreign Office. SAGE will contribute to empowering Middle Eastern societies to create a science-based, adaptive and sustainable management of natural resources in a changing world.

    How Vulnerable are Small Firms to Energy Price Increases? Evidence from Mexico

    The vulnerability of small firms to price shocks may partly explain why fossil fuel subsidy removals in developing countries are so difficult to implement. This paper analyzes the effects of fuel and electricity price increases on profits of micro- and small-sized enterprises in Mexico.

    Just Energy Transition in the Global South

    South Asia Climate Dialogue, Hertie School, Berlin Organisation: Hertie School of Governance Jesus Renzullo (Vortragende:r)

    The SACD attempts to answer questions regarding the energy transition such as (1) what does a Just Energy Transition mean for the Global South? (2) How to balance priorities between transition and justice? (3) what are good practices for international cooperation in the JET? (4) what are the opportunities and challenges with it?

    On Globalization of Climate-related Political Instability: The Correlation between Global Food Supply Chain Shocks and Violent Intrastate Conflict

    IBEI-GIGA Workshop Security, Conflict and Peace, IBEI, Barcelona Jesus Renzullo (Vortragende:r)

    Jesus Renzullo presents the framework for a large-N study to find causality between climate-related shocks in major food-producing countries and conflict preconditions (inflation, unemployment) in both net food exporters and net food importers between 1998 and 2018.
