NFU conference 2012 - 'Development for a Finite Planet: Grassroots perspectives and responses to climate change, resource extraction and economic development'

The 2012 annual NFU conference 'Development for a Finite Planet: Grassroots perspectives and responses to climate change, resource extraction and economic development' will be held on November 26-27 at CIENS. The conference is jointly organised by the Centre for International Climate and Environmental Research-Oslo (CICERO) and Noragric/Norwegian University of Life Sciences.

The annual conference for the Norwegian Association for Development Research (NFU) is the main arena for debate and academic interchange among development researchers in Norway. In line with our tradition, the annual conference - this year jointly organised by the Centre for International Climate and Environmental Research-Oslo (CICERO) and Noragric/Norwegian University of Life Sciences - will focus on a critical topic for development research. We aim to bridge and promote dialogue between development and climate research.

Proposals for Panels should be sent to the conference coordinator, at nfuconference2012@cicero.uio.no no later than the 31st of August. Panels should consist of no more than 4 presenters and one discussant. Panel proposals need to present a 300 words description of the panel, name and affiliation of conveners, and titles and abstracts of all 4 papers (see guidelines for papers) along names and affiliations of authors.

We encourage panel proposals to have mix of junior and senior researchers.
