(p.57) Three Spaces
Climate change and poverty

Tony Fitzpatrick

Policy Press

If socionatural resources are at the heart of any understanding of ecosocial poverty then we need to understand two dimensions: space and time. Since those resources occupy space and since space is itself a resource this chapter looks at the spatial dimensions of poverty by exploring two subjects – social policy, environmental sociology. Given the interdependencies of society and nature, therefore, we need to devise resilient shock-absorbers. Ecospatial deprivation is defined in terms of various categories and indicators: quantity, mobility, value, control, sharing and caring. The chapter ends with another iteration of what ecosocial poverty can be taken to mean.

Keywords:   space, resources, interdependencies, deprivation indicators
