NACLA post on the implications of climate change in rural Colombia

Alejandro Camargo, a geography PhD student at Syracuse recently authored this piece
posted on the website of NACLA, the North American Congress on Latin America:

Global Climate Change in Rural Colombia Is About More Than Just the Climate

As the excerpt below indicates, this pieces addresses several themes that have been of concern to PPEL members and blog readers:

“…structural problems in vulnerable areas such as the concentration of land, rural violence, and the environmental effects of large-scale projects are still seen as unconnected from the challenges of adaptation to global climate change. Infrastructural works are crucial to prevent future climate-related calamities, but in a country like Colombia the question of adaptation to global climate change in rural areas needs to be a question of food sovereignty, land rights, and environmental justice as well.”
