'Urban Climate Justice: Rights and resilience in Southeast Asia'

Urban Climate Justice: Rights and resilience in Southeast Asia will be led by Joanna Kocsis, pictured here against a leafy backdrop

This presentation will connect theoretical developments around rights and resilience in the field urban climate justice to practice by grounding the literature’s key arguments in the experiences of five-year project based in Southeast Asian cities. The project consisted of a network of researchers working closely with civil society stakeholders to understand and influence urban climate resilience. It will explore how researchers can better support transformative resilience that advances rights and justice, by understanding researchers’ knowledge production and mobilization efforts as an active part of the transformation process. Bringing together epistemological and methodological insights from political ecology and action research, it will discuss three practice-oriented concepts that can support research for transformative resilience.
