Transformative Development Pathways – Critical Perspectives on Urbanisation, Land and Water
From Monday 15 July 2019
To Tuesday 16 July 2019

Under the theme of 'Transformative Development Pathways – Critical Perspectives on Urbanisation, Land and Water', the WaterPower project invites you to participate in the project’s final symposium. Hosted by the Governance and Sustainability Lab at Trier University, the event aims to connect participants for discussions and exchanges on what efforts in knowing and governing the urban may be needed for transformative change. 

We invite researchers and early career professionals working across diverse sub-fields in Geography, Urban Studies, Development Studies, Environmental Sociology, Ecology, and related fields. 

The symposium will be held in English. The deadline for applications is 7 April 2019.

The symposium takes the form of a two-day event with generous time for discussion and interaction built around the planned presentations. The event will host sessions covering the following themes: 

  • Water Governance, Institutional Bricolage and Hydro-Social Relations 
  • Water Practices in the Provision of Water 
  • Conservation Politics of Wetlands and the Articulation of Ecosystem Services 
  • Socio-Ecological Inequalities of Land and Water in the Peri-Urban 
  • Urban Water Futures 

WaterPower is more than a third-party funded research project – we understand ourselves as a collaborative research team that places an emphasis on an interdisciplinary dialogue rooted in a respect for different epistemological starting points. Our in-depths analysis on the waterscape of Accra, Ghana, explores how social-ecological inequalities are embedded in and reproduced by political and social relations, everyday practices of water provision, wetland conservation and urban expansion as well as biophysical elements and the material world.
