Reva Prakash giving her speech during the Environmentalism seminar at Wangari Maathai Institute, CAVS.

Wangari Maathai Institute for Peace and Environmental Studies held an Envriomentalism lecture seminar titled “Environmentalism in the Global South: AnalysingSelect Readings from Kenya on Justice, Equity and Rights”. The key speaker was Reva Prakash.

The seminar touched on topical issues such as great development goals, ecological integrity, rapidly urbanising landscape and replacement of polluting industries. It shed some light on the link between environmental regeneration, conservation and preservation with livelihood of the poor.  

In her study, it was realized that livelihood of the poor greatly depends on ecosystem services thus there is a direct linkage between environmental degradation and the increased diminishing living conditions of the poor. This makes environmental preservation an important concern to the poor and marginalised.

Reva Prakash is a Senior Research Fellow (University Grants Commission, India), a PhD candidate at the Centre for International Politics, Organization and Disarmament at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi; and a visiting researcher at the Wangari Maathai Institute for Peace and Environmental Studies.  She has an M. Phil in International Politics and an M.A. in International Relations from Jawaharlal Nehru University.
