NIAS talk | Secrets of the sea in times of climate breakdown

December 13 @ 17:00 - 18:30

Despite its many secrets and wonders, oceans have been under threat for years. Corals are dying and sea life is disappearing. Although this is a global phenomenon, some people are affected more than others—and as with many a climate issue, these inequalities bear witness of the afterlife of (post)colonialism. In this talk, we shed light on the ambiguous nature of marine protection and the colonial dimensions of ocean health.

Speakers: Yvonne Kunz (KITLV), Sonny Mumbunan (University of Indonesia), Eric Mijts (University of Aruba), Michael Tedja (NIAS) &
Zará Kars (NIAS).

More information.

Yvonne Kunz is coordinator of the KITLV-NIOO-NIAS Theme Group that investigates Climate Change and the Governance of Tropical Marine Protected Areas. KITLV, NIOO, NIAS and WUR join forces in an interdisciplinary study of the impact of climate change on social-ecological systems (SES). A consortium including Indonesian and Caribbean partners in academia and NGOs will co-create and implement pilot research in four coastal zones in the two tropical archipelagoes. More information.
