The Urgency of Deforestation

Carbon Offsetting and the Preservation of El Impenetrable Dry Forest in the Great American Chaco

My current research is focused on investigating the impact of the Carbon Credit Market on the indigenous rights in El Impenetrable Dry Forest, in Argentina. Within this framework, I explore the concepts of environmental justice and climate finance, with the primary objective of unraveling the intricate mechanisms of environmental policies as essential tools for urgent climate action and understanding the role of indigenous communities in achieving sustainable development goals.

Doctoral Candidate: Metztli García Hernández

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Social Anthropology department at Uppsala University, working under the guidance of Susann Baez Ullberg (UU) and Omolade Adunbi (Umich). My academic foundation lies primarily in Social Anthropology, with a B.A. from the Autonomous Metropolitan University (UAM-I) and another B.A. from the Research and Higher Studies in Social Anthropology (CIESAS). Prior to becoming a member of the C-urge consortium, I actively engaged in collaborative efforts with both private and public institutions. My contributions were centered on the development of territorial programs and initiatives, characterized by a holistic and culturally sensitive approach. Noteworthy projects included the establishment of the Resource Hub for Strengthening Indigenous Rights (CEFO), the creation of Territorial Planning and Management Plans for heritage monuments in Mexico City, and conducting social impact assessments for the energy sector.
