Podium: Between Climate Change and Modernization Boom - The Uncertain Future of East Africa’s Savannas

organized by REAL (Resilience in East African Landscapes)

East Africa is experiencing a period of swift changes. This development is characterized by a rapidly growing population, the modernization of agricultural production, innovations in energy technologies as well as the increase in nature conservation areas. At the same time, East African societies continue to be shaped by violent conflicts, state failures and social grievances. The consequences of climate change and further waves of globalization might exacerbate these problems in this highly dynamic region

The discussants:

  • Prof. David Anderson (Warwick, History)
  • Richard Dimba Kiaka
  • Dr. des. (Hamburg, Social and Cultural Anthropology) 
  • Prof. Cyrus Samimi (Bayreuth, Climatology)

Moderation: Prof. Michael Bollig (Cologne, Social and Cultural Anthropology)

This presentation is part of the exhibition: "Getting Closer Ways of Understanding Climate change in East Africa"
