Our colleagues David Kuhn, Fanny Frick-Trzebitzky et al. recently published a new ISOE discussion paper on the conceptualisation of the non-human, for example animals, forests or water, in the context of environmental conflicts.
Drawing from research on municipal water supply in Accra (Ghana) and Mansfeld-Südharz (Germany),
Fanny Frick-Trzebitzky et al. demonstrate the usefulness of bricolage thinking for a more grounded and power-sensitive analysis of adaptive water governance.
We congratulate one of regulate’s master students, Sofia Redeker, for receiving the Frankfurt Prize for Environment and Sustainability 2023.
Next Monday, June 19, Robert will give the opening talk at the Summer Academy “Act Green – Water: Responsible use of a scarce resource”, organised by “Katholische Akademie die Wolfsburg”.
The regulate-team is going to chair a session on “Groundwater Geographies: (in)visible flows, (un)traceable past, (un)certain future” at Deutscher Kongress für Geographie 2023 in Frankfurt am Main. The session welcomes interdisciplinary contributions that explore the multiple dimensions of groundwater.
In the new ISOE Blog Post, Fanny and Robert reflect on the UN Groundwater Summit, which took place in Paris in December 2022, and provide a perspective on the Water Action Agenda, an outcome of the 2023 UN Water Conference.
Robert was invited to give a public lecture on January 25, as part of the lecture series “Limited Resources – Consumption, Use, Protection” organized by the ‘Frankfurter Geographische Gesellschaft (FGG)’. He will talk about current and future water availability and societal water demand in context of climate change and other socio-political dynamics.
Recently, the entire ‘regulate’ team was able to have a first in-person meeting since over a year. Three days of updating on current project status, case study progress and individual research.
Fanny and Robert will join the UN-Water Summit on Groundwater in Paris and give an input on December 6th. They will talk about telecoupling effects on groundwater, mainly related to our case-studies in Germany and Croatia.
Linda and collegues are going to chair a session on “Socio-Hydrology: fostering transdisciplinarity in groundwater sciences” at the general assembly of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) 2023 in Vienna. The session welcomes contributions around transdisciplinarity and groundwater research.
