  1. Conserving and Regenerating Forests and Soils to Mitigate Climate Change

    12:30 PM – 1:30 PM

    Can the world meet the ambitious Paris goals and avoid catastrophic climate change? An important solution is beneath our feet. Dr. Codur will discuss the earth’s soils massive capacity to remove and store carbon from the atmosphere. Scientists argue that if we efficiently mobilize all natural carbon sinks, we can find the path to reverse global climate change.

  2. Offshore Development and Indigenous Sovereignty: A Case Study from the Canadian Arctic

    12:30 PM – 1:30 PM

    The decline of multi-year sea ice in the Arctic has led to increasing interest in the region on the part of a variety of actors, including multinational companies, scientists, and conservation organizations. Indigenous peoples who live in the region, meanwhile, are deepening their efforts to assert sovereignty over decision-making in all areas that affect their lands, waters, and livelihoods. In this talk, Dr. Noor Johnson, a Research Scientist at the Fletcher School, will present a case study of a recent conflict between Inuit communities and the government of Canada over a proposal to conduct seismic testing in Baffin Bay. The talk will explore the role of legal and scientific expertise in evaluating risk related to offshore activities, and will discuss implications for the meaningful engagement of Indigenous peoples in decision-making in national and international contexts. Dr. Johnson will be teaching a course entitled “Indigenous and Frontline Communities and Environmental Change” in the Anthropology Department in Spring 2018 (ANTH 149-13).
