The Age of Uncertainty: Climate change, water systems and social development

The Age of Uncertainty: Climate change, water systems and social development

CONFERENCE: Analyses and political predictions of climate change and the societal consequences of them are often presented as universal and general, but these processes must also be analysed as parts of specific geographical and historical contexts.

16-18 February 2011 | University of Bergen, Norway

Climate change and changes in precipitation patterns will have context-dependent and specific regional causes and consequences. Some areas may be better off or not seriously affected whereas, in other areas, the very same changes may have dramatic and devastating impacts.

This conference will approach these pressing issues within historical and geographical perspectives. It will also discuss theoretical and methodological challenges involved in studies of climate change, water systems and social development.

The conference is the final conference organized by the “water group" led by Terje Tvedt, at the Centre for Advanced Studies at the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, University of Oslo (2008-2009). It is organized in cooperation with the Department of Geography, the Nile Basin Research Program and the Faculty of Social Science, University of Bergen and The Nordic Africa Institute, Uppsala, Sweden.

The Conference is open to all.
