A Public Political Ecology of the Carbon Economy. Tracey Osborne

Tracey Osborne is Assistant Professor in the School of Geography and Development and Director of the Public Political Ecology Lab at the University of Arizona. Her research investigates the political ecology of environmental markets, particularly carbon markets, and their implications for the lives and livelihoods of forest communities in the Global South. Specifically, she explores the intersection of carbon markets, development, and agrarian change as they relate to forestry-based carbon initiatives in Mexico. She received her PhD from the Energy and Resources Group at the University of California, Berkeley. The event is co-sponsored by the Yale Student Environmental Coalition (YSEC).
