Meera Karunananthan (Carleton University) has been working with water justice networks around the world for nearly 15 years. Her research methodology combines feminist ethnographic research with critical policy analysis as part of dialogical processes of building knowledge of systems operating across multiple scales through situated solidarities. She would like to engage the Climate Commons in a discussion about how we expand our epistemological community by sharing and building knowledge from different geographical and social locations in order to develop more just, equitable and effective climate mitigation and adaptation strategies.
