The presentation aims to explore the interrelationships between poverty and climate change from three angles. First, we present our broad conceptual framework of the co-evolution of poverty alleviation and climate change in growth trajectories, with as background the economic literature in the matter. Then, as development practitioners in India, we present our insights, garnered through personal experience and observations over time, at two levels:
Multi-level Governance and Disaster Response
Politics of Religious Pluralism: Interfaith "Dialogues" and Diagreements
Targeted Killings in Israel and in the United States
Investment Treaty interpretation by international arbitrators
The Transnational Networks of Catholic Anti-Semitism (France, Italy, 1917-1934)
