In January 2023, the Program on African Social Research convened a workshop at Mohammed VI Polytechnic University in Rabat, Morocco, to discuss the many possible meanings and forms of the politics of environmental change. A diverse, multidisciplinary group of almost a dozen early career scholars from across the continent participated in two days of discussions, searching for both commonalities and differences in the political experience of the environment. Their papers are collected here as a starting point in a broader cross African conversation, with the goal of centering African knowledge production and bringing the voices of emerging scholars from the continent into the conversation about environmental politics and climate change. These papers illuminate the ways these different meanings are constructed, as well as drawing out the political implications of the contestations over these divergent understandings.

The Program on African Social Research aims to provide opportunities for feedback, networking, mentoring, and meaningful collaborative possibilities between junior scholars based in Africa and established scholars based both within and outside of the continent, especially those with diasporic and other ties to African countries. PASR is supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. It is based at the Marxe School of Public and International Affairs, Baruch College, City University of New York.
