- Environmental Uncertainty and Local Knowledge

Southeast Asia as a Laboratory of Global Ecological Change




















Southeast Asia is a laboratory showing current worldwide ecological issues. Environmental change, natural resource exploitation as well as global climate change increasingly threaten people's livelihoods. Environmentally based uncertainties foster a high level of knowledge uncertainty. This poses a constantly growing threat to agricultural production. Vulnerable communities with a low degree of resilience are most severely affected.

But local communities have abilities to innovate and develop locally embedded coping strategies. The contributors of this volume are most interested in environmental change that fosters knowledge uncertainties. Regions discussed include Yunnan, Vietnam, West Timor, Moluccas, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia and the Philippines.
