Osaka, Shannon; et al. (2021): Framing “nature‐based” solutions to climate change

Osaka, Shannon; Bellamy, Rob; Castree, Noel (2021): Framing “nature‐based” solutions to climate change. In Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Climate Change. DOI: 10.1002/wcc.729.

"We review what counts (and what does not count) as a natural solution, and find that those labeled natural are routinely framed under technical and social appraisal criteria as being more beneficial, cost effective, mature, and democratic than ostensibly artificial counterparts."

Beck, S.; Oomen, Jeroen (2021): Imagining the corridor of climate mitigation – What is at stake in IPCC’s politics of anticipation?

Beck, S.; Oomen, Jeroen (2021): Imagining the corridor of climate mitigation – What is at stake in IPCC’s politics of anticipation? In Environmental Science & Policy 123, pp. 169–178. DOI: 10.1016/j.envsci.2021.05.011.

"The article examines how the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) performs its self-proclaimed role as ‘mapmaker. We seek to contribute to the emerging literature on global environmental assessments (GEA) and climate politics by reconstructing how the IPCC imagines the corridor for climate mitigation."
