In this segment of the Luce Southeast Asia in Transition Webinar Series, we explore the story of development from varied perspectives, putting local interactions with the development paradigm and the more-than-human world into a broad conversation. Our speakers include academic, practitioner, and local voices. In this third session we will focus upon the aquatic waterscapes of the region and local perspectives on the outcomes of human efforts to harness and control water and weather.
