Throughout Southeast Asia, economic and political forces interact to shape local environmental management outcomes. For example, in Vietnam, efforts to link land use to national and global carbon markets have reconfigured interorganizational forest governance networks and disrupted patterns of forest loss. Elsewhere, government-led campaigns to address resource over-extraction have spurred changes in livelihoods, settlement patterns, and land use. These dynamics are commonly mediated by human-environment interactions that play out in geographic space. This organized session features research that applies socio-spatial perspectives to improve understanding of land use and land use change in Southeast Asia. In particular, the session highlights recent empirical work that explores the spatial dimensions of interdependence among environmental management, markets, social processes, and geopolitics.
