The environmentalism of the poor : a study of ecological conflicts and valuation by Juan Martínez Alier( )

35 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 1,200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book analyses several manifestations of the growing 'environmental justice movement', and also of 'popular environmentalism' and the 'environmentalism of the poor', which will be seen in the coming decades as driving forces in the process to achieve an ecologically sustainable society. The author studies, in detail, many ecological distribution conflicts in history and at present, in urban and rural settings, showing how poor people often favour resource conservation. The environment is thus not so much a luxury of the rich as a necessity of the poor. It concludes with the fundamental questions: who has the right to impose a language of valuation and who has the power to simplify complexity?"--Pub. desc
Assessing Biodiversity Risks With Socio- Economic Methods The Alarm Experience by Beatriz Rodriguez-Labajos( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1,101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humans play an undeniable role in the acceleration of threats to the diversity of ecosystems, species and genes. This book is a response to the urgent need of policy oriented socio-ecological research, profoundly based on empirical evidence. Socio-environmental patterns and political responses are compared through the use of case studies analyzing a range of pressures to biodiversity. Aquatic bioinvasions in the Ebro River and Lake Izabal exemplify socio-environmental processes linked to river basins. Other cases examine processes at the regional level: the social attitudes to genetically modified organisms in Catalan agriculture, the implementation of a Regional Strategy for Biodiversity in the Ile-de-France, the management of an invasive insect in the city of Paris, and the comparative analysis in Kent (UK) and Tartu (Estonia) county of the effects of the Common Agricultural Policy on pollinators' diversity. An economic valuation of the decline of pollinators in Germany and Spain, and an analysis of land use changes in the new EU member states focus on processes at the national scale within the EU frame. A case study in Argentina, about the emergence of pesticide resistance in an invasive pest, embodies the relationship between a national state and the processes of the world economy. The ALARM project aims to promote creative thinking. Inspired by ecological economics, methodologies employed range from multi-criteria evaluation and participatory techniques to social network analysis, valuation of environmental services, scenario modelling and historical analysis. The authors have uniquely explored case-study-based research for socio-economic analyses of biodiversity risks. Emphasis is put both on the lessons learnt from the comparative analysis as well as on the methodological innovations

L'écologisme des pauvres une étude des conflits environnementaux dans le monde by Juan Martínez Alier( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"L'écologie, un luxe réservé aux pays riches? Rien de plus faux, explique Joan Martinez Alier, qui prouve à travers ce livre que justice sociale et préservation de l'environnement, loin de se concurrencer, vont de pair. À rebours de la croyance selon laquelle il faudrait avoir atteint un certain niveau de confort pour se " permettre " d'être écologiste, l'auteur montre qu'il s'agit souvent d'une question de vie ou de mort pour les plus démunis. Ainsi, tout comme il existe un écologisme de l'abondance (le tri sélectif ne peut s'inventer que dans des endroits où les poubelles débordent!), il existe partout dans le monde un écologisme des pauvres. Car non seulement les pauvres dépendent étroitement de leur environnement pour survivre, mais c'est aussi vers eux que sont transférées les activités les plus polluantes. Dans ce livre devenu un classique de l'écologie politique, Joan Martinez Alier s'interroge sur les calculs possibles pour déterminer un prix "écologiquement correct " intégrant les dégâts environnementaux et sociaux. Mais, bien au-delà, il insiste sur l'incommensurabilité des valeurs : quel prix donner à une vie humaine? Quel prix pour une terre " sacrée " détruite par une mine de cuivre. ou pour une communauté entière exposée à des déchets toxiques? Aujourd'hui, petit à petit, la notion de justice environnementale fait son chemin. L'idée de dette écologique également : ceux qui utilisent le moins de ressources ne seraient-ils pas les créanciers de ceux qui les gaspillent? Autrement dit, les riches n'auraient-ils pas une dette écologique envers les pauvres?" Présentation de l'éditeur
