  • A political ecology for Developing Countries ? Progress and paradox in the evolution of a research field

  • and ecological praxis. I conclude by briefly considering what the paradoxe of this research field might mean in terms of future challenges for political ecology. - (L'A.).
  • Network political ecology. Method and theory in climate change vulnerability and adaptation research
  • Adaptation ; Climatic change ; Farm ; India ; Irrigation ; Network ; Political ecology ; Rajasthan ; Scale ; Underground water ; Vulnerability
  • The paper argues for the development of network political ecology, drawing on the insights from regional political ecology and recent advancements in network theories of scale, to meet the challenges of investigating the meso-scale problem
  • of vulnerability and adaptation to climate change. Network political ecology, attentive to scale as socio-ecologically produced and grounded in a regional resource use system, is one such approach that fills this gap in middle-range theory necessary to understand
