Information

Climate policy and its impacts on Sumatra’s peasant communities is investigated using two case studies for Jambi province: one on the expansion of oil palm cultivation and one on the challenges for peasant agriculture posed by the development of a conservation area. The associated conflicts centre on often-neglected aspects of climate politics. They illustrate trade-offs between mitigation and adaptation objectives. We argue that marginalised actors face triple exposure. They are negatively affected by climate change, neoliberal globalisation as well as increasingly impacted by attempts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
