Recap – How Urban Political Ecology Scholarship can Contribute to Efforts to Address Antimicrobial Resistance

Post

Published on 31 October 2022

On October 26, Raphael Aguiar presented a guiding framework that focuses on rescaling socio-ecological governance approaches to addressing AMR by considering societal relations with nature that affect AMR at the human-animal-environmental interface. Antimicrobial resistance, pandemics, biodiversity loss, and climate change pose simultaneous existential threats, yet coordinated responses that jointly address them through a One Health approach do not exist. An urban political ecology (UPE) lens informs a critical analysis of the governance of antimicrobial stewardship (AMR) by situating AMR risks in relation to global governance and economic forces that shape the social and political co-determinants of antimicrobial and other systemic existential threats already confronted in broader commitments to pandemic prevention and environmental stewardship.
