FORest ciTizenship for disaster rEsilience: learning from COVID-19
Funders involved: ESRC; NSF; FAPESP
This project uses Brazilian Amazonia as an arena to examine how marginalized people, disproportionately affected by COVID-19, are using citizenship to mitigate the pandemic’s negative societal effects. The project aims (1) quantify linkages between forest citizenship and COVID-19 resilience; (2) understand practices of forest citizenship in relation to COVID-19 experiences; and (3) understand and disseminate learning on conditions for promoting forest citizenship and enhancing disaster resilience across Amazonia.
