Critical Commentary

"About the project: The Environmental Infrastructures project is a Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (A) project funded by the Japan Society for Promotion of Science (JSPS). The project aims at exploring complex interfaces between environmental knowledge (both scientific and indigenous) in proliferating international attempts to achieve sustainable management of global environmental changes. Mainly drawing on anthropology and science and technology studies (STS) and based on international collaboration between Japanese and Danish scholars, among others, project members are developing a comparative basis for the analysis of the intersections of a variety of practices in the making of infrastructures for knowing and managing environmental change. The range of our empirical studies varies from watershed management projects in Thailand and Ethiopia, to a wave energy industry in western Denmark, the construction of an indigenous knowledge database in India, and the reconstruction of the areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake."
