This study illustrates how, despite the diversity of women environmental defenders and their movements around the world, there are near-universal patterns of violence threatening their survival. Violence against women environmental defenders, often perpetrated by government-backed corporations, remains overlooked. [...]

Recent research and policies recognize the importance of environmental defenders for global sustainability and emphasize their need for protection against violence and repression. However, effective support may benefit from a more systematic understanding of the underlying environmental conflicts, as well as from better knowledge on the factors that enable environmental defenders to mobilize successfully.

India's economic growth in the last decade has raised several concerns in terms of its present and future resource demands for materials and energy. While per capita resource consumption is still extremely modest but on the rise, its sheer population qualifies India as a fast growing giant with material and energy throughput that is growing rapidly .

Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
The extractive sector is increasingly important in the GDP and export basket of the four Andean countries under study (ACs) (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia). The analysis of an updated inventory of 296 environmental conflicts in the EJAtlas for these four countries reaches the following conclusions: extractivism causes environmental conflicts related to mining, fossil fuels, hydropower and biomass; indigenous, Afro-descendant and peasant communities are the most affected; behind the conflicts, there are not only environmental impacts but also social impacts that concern livelihoods, land deprivation and work insecurity, and also loss of cultural practices and cultural identity; most of the forms of collective action used in protests are peaceful, most notably petitions, street marches, media activism, lawsuits, while States and companies criminalize activists and are often violent (with about 75 cases in which there are deaths or disappearance of environmental defenders); socio-environmental movements (that sometimes include environmental NGOs) have achieved relative success, stopping 59 of the 296 conflict-generating projects and giving birth to new forms of resistance.

25 p, 451.1 KB Ecological distribution conflicts and the vocabulary of environmental justice / Martínez Alier, Joan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
There is a fundamental clash between economy and the environment due to the growing social metabolism of industrial economies. Energy cannot be recycled. Therefore, the energy from the fossil fuels is used only once, and new supplies of coal, oil, and gas must be obtained from the "commodity extraction frontiers". [...]

Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals
La presente tesis contribuye a la comprensión del metabolismo social. Específicamente, analiza el rol de los residuos en el metabolismo. Primero, reflexiona sobre la relación existente entre el metabolismo social y los conflictos ambientales, examinando cómo diferentes estructuras metabólicas condicionan las dinámicas del conflicto; todo ello desde la perspectiva de la ecología política situada en el espacio y el tiempo. [...]
This thesis contributes to our understanding of social metabolism, and more precisely waste in social metabolism. First, I shed light in particular on the relationship between social metabolism and conflict, looking from a situated political ecology perspective, at how differences in the structure and nature of particular social metabolisms create different conflict dynamics.

Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals
La expansión de la minería de carbón en la región Caribe de Colombia no sólo crea problemas ambientales y de salud a nivel local, sino que también es una cuestión de preocupación global. Colombia, con casi 85 millones de toneladas exportadas, contribuye considerablemente a las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero cuando se quema el carbón exportado en las centrales eléctricas de carbón (CEC) en los países importadores, como los Países Bajos y Turquía. [...]
The expansion of coal mining in the Caribbean region of Colombia not only creates environmental and health problems locally but is also a matter of global concern. Colombia, with almost 85 million tons exported, makes a large contribution to greenhouse gas emissions when the exported coal is burnt in coal-fired power plants (CFPPs) in importing countries, such as The Netherlands and Turkey.

La estrategia de acumulación 'primario-exportadora' tradicionalmente adoptada en América Latina tiene consecuencias político-económicas y socio-ambientales problemáticas. En Bolivia, desde 2006, el gobierno de Evo Morales adoptó importantes planes-influenciados por movilizaciones populares e indígenas-para reestructurar la gobernanza de los recursos naturales y, en última instancia, superar el 'extractivismo'. [...]
The resource-based accumulation strategy traditionally adopted by Latin American countries is associated with problematic political economic and socio-environmental outcomes. In Bolivia, since 2006, the government of Evo Morales adopted important plans-informed by popular-indigenous mobilisations-for restructuring the governance of, and ultimately overcoming, resource 'extractivism'.

El análisis de políticas ambientales mediante el uso de homo economicus ha sido criticado por no tomar en cuenta la multiplicidad de valores ambientales y bases éticas en las cuales se basa la motivación humana. [...]
The application of the homo economicus model of human action for analysing environmental policy has been consistently criticised for ignoring the multiplicity of environmental values and ethical bases that underlie human motivation, which may result in undesirable crowding out and voice silencing effects that generate ineffective and legitimacy-deficient environmental policies.
