Climate variability, climate change, and social vulnerability in the semi-arid tropics( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Climate fluctuations can trigger events that lead to mass migration, hunger and famine. Rather than attributing the blame to nature, the contributors look at the underlying causes of social vulnerability, such as the processes and organisation of society in the semi-arid tropics. Past and present susceptibility to destitution, hunger, and famine in the face of climate variability can teach us about the potential future consequences of climate change. By understanding why individuals, households, nations, and regions are vulnerable, and how they have buffered themselves against climatic and environmental fluctuations, present and future vulnerability can be redressed. Through case studies from across the globe, the authors explore past experiences with climate variability, and the likely effects of, and the possible policy responses to, the types of climatic events that global warming might bring

Markets, states and environmental policy : the political economy of charcoal in Senegal by Jesse Craig Ribot( )

8 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Senegal's rapidly growing urban charcoal demand has led to rural firewood scarcity and the disappearance of locally valued forest products. Charcoal production by migrant workers has also led to conflict over village and forest resource use. Based on fieldwork among the producers and merchants of Senegal's charcoal market and the officials and agents regulating it, I explore social factors governing the form, function and effects of policies ostensibly implemented to protect and manage Senegal's forest resource. I focus on the social relations--the cultural, political and economic ties--which constitute and integrate the market and state, forming the context in which regulatory policies are developed, applied, changed and circumvented

1 edition published in 2010 in Wolof and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The villagers of Daru Fippu are empowered to manage their forests by Senegal's decentralization laws. They want the forests for local use, but the Forest Service's Mega Bank project convinces the villagers to participate in charcoal production to make money for local development. The forest service says they must cut the forests for charcoal to supply cooking fuel for the city. The foresters speak of management, but insist only on production. They speak of participation, but the villagers participate only as labor. They speak of development, but foresters block them from lucrative forestry markets. Villagers are only allowed to produce at low prices and sell their charcoal to urban merchants at the forest edge. Foresters refuse to give them production quotas and permits to sell for much-higher prices they could get in the city of Dakar. When the sympathetic project director, Mbaxan, tells them they can get ten times the price selling in the city, the villagers are shocked. Mbaxan tries to help the destitute villagers to profit from their rich forests, but is stymied by the Forest Service. They make some headway, but not enough. The villagers of Daru Fippu federate to fight for their rights."--Http://doublebladeaxe.com
Weex Dunx and the quota, or, The plucking of local democracy in Senegal = [Weex Dunx et le quota, ou, La démocracie déplumée]( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in Wolof and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Senegal's Tambacounda region forests are cut and made into charcoal to supply cities with cooking fuel. A few merchants control the charcoal trade because they are given charcoal production quotas by the National Forestry Department. The quotas give merchants exclusive rights to production and marketing. Senegal's 1998 forestry decentralization law eliminated the quota and gave forest management and use rights to elected Rural Councils. This film tells the story of forest decentralization in the fictional jurisdiction of Nambaradougou, where Mr. Weex Dunx is the Rural Council president. In Wolof, the local language, "weex dunx" means "plucked white," and refers to a "scapegoat."
