My new article just out @ForeignAffairs argues that the #US and #China are not directly competing for #SoftPower. Instead, what we are witnessing is #coexistence of their distinct approaches and practices. foreignaffairs.com/articles/china… 1/10
First, I contrast the more ideational or ideological #SoftPower conception and practice by the #US with the more #pragmatic approach of #China. The #US emphasizes liberal values, whereas #China stresses material welfare and mutual development as part of its vision. 2/10
The #US public diplomacy celebrates and promotes idealized vision of #American democracy. #China promotes its economic accomplishments and fuses practical benefits with cultural programming. This distinction is especially notable in the #GlobalSouth. 3/10

New #openaccess paper by @Vale_Fiasco & me in @ConservandSoc exploring how human-wildlife #coexistence is conceptualised & practiced among conservation professionals, & what this means for #transformation in #biodiversity #conservation conservationandsociety.org.in/preprintarticl… A thread… 1/6:
We identify coexistence as a #buzzword that is meaningful for many professionals and reflects a 'hopeful mission' towards #transformation in #biodiversity #conservation 2/6
#coexistence means very different things to different groups of practitioners, activists, and academics – from human-wildlife conflict mitigation, to co-adaptation, to a way of prioritising the practices and knowledge of indigenous peoples and local communities 3/6

Sound #science underpins effective conservation action, and so developing #conservationmanagement tools requires a deep understanding of #animalecology. #Scienceweek. PC: Bobby-Jo Vial Image
Where #wildlifemanagement tools rely on natural signals to modify behaviour, they must be underpinned by an understanding of #animalcommunication & cognition. Taronga's @HWConflict collaborates on several projects with @BPCTcamp unravelling African large #carnivore communication
For example, #leopard #scentmarking behaviour (doi.org/10.1016/j.anbe…); spotted #hyena latrine-use (doi.org/10.1007/s00265…); #cheetah marking trees (doi.org/10.1111/aje.12…); and scent marking behaviour of #AfricanWildDogs (doi.org/10.1111/eth.12…). PC: Bobby-Jo Vial Image

In addition to conducting the #science underpinning evidence-based #conservation tools, Taronga also supports their roll out. For example, Taronga supports a #carnivore #coexistence officer, Tshepo Ditlhabang, on @BPCTrust’s “Re Mmôgô” project in #Botswana #ScienceWeek Image
This #coexistence officer provides the community with access to evidence-based #HWC mitigation tools, including eye-cow, and is working to provide protective livestock collars, and flashing lights (#lionlights) at overnight enclosures. Image
While deterring hungry #carnivores, flashing lights also deter #elephants, themselves a major cause of #HWC but also a vital part of the ecosystem. Research led by @TempeAdams at Elephants without borders showed lights deterred field incursions doi.org/10.1017/S00306… Image

One approach to reducing #HWC and its impacts is to develop tools that promote human-wildlife #coexistence. An eye-catching project conceived by Taronga scientist @HWConflict is one such example. #ScienceWeek PC: Bobby-Jo Vial. Image
By hijacking a common anti-predator signal and applying it in a novel context in #Botswana, the team were able to reduce livestock losses to #lions. nature.com/articles/s4200… PC: Bobby-Jo Vial. Image
The eye-cow approach was very successful in reducing predation by #lions, and Taronga produced detailed “how-to” guides to using the technique with locally available resources, prompting interest and subsequent trials in Peru, USA, India, and Kenya. carnivorecoexistence.info/african-carniv…

Day 2 this #ScienceWeek we focus on #carnivore ecology and #conservation, particularly #HumanWildlifeConflict, a major contributor to biodiversity decline, and consequently a focus for our #science team. PC: Bobby-Jo Vial. Image
We’ll cover some of the core #science projects that Taronga has established or contributed to, highlighting how science-based solutions and evidence-based approaches to #conservation are critical.
In a conjoint role with @CES_UNSW, Taronga’s Conservation Biologist, Dr Neil Jordan (@HWConflict) works in #HumanWildlifeConflict and management, focusing on the #ecology and #conservation of African #carnivores and #dingoes, Australia’s own apex terrestrial carnivore.

.@elephantfamily's *incredible* lantana elephants have landed in the UK, part of their #CoExistence campaign. In the spirit of productive discussion, a thread on the use of language of coexistence, connectivity and indigenous knowledge in conservation 1/17
standard.co.uk/news/uk/elepha…
I'm attached to (and love) these elephants, I've seen them being made. They were produced in the same place where I conducted my dissertation research. I know the artists and their work and support it 100%- it's important (and beautiful). @tidefortusks @UA_Athletics? 2/17
But I don't think the language in this campaign mirrors the intent of the creators or what conservation coexistence means in a landscape of ongoing fights over indigenous displacement and dispossession. 3/17

My article published by @Tabletmag. I talk about how #Jews and #Muslims in #Azerbaijan have always stood together, through thick and thin, including during the #MarchGenocide of 1918 and two #Karabakh wars tabletmag.com/sections/news/…
On Nov. 10, the 44-day war between #Azerbaijan and #Armenia came to an end, as Armenia agreed to a ceasefire and to withdraw from occupied territories. For the past 30 years, Armenia had occupied 20% of Azerbaijan’s sovereign territory, forcibly displacing 800,000 #Azerbaijanis.
#Shusha is where one of our most decorated and beloved war heroes, #AlbertAgarunov, fought bravely and lost his life to an #Armenian sniper in 1992. His story is both the story of an #Azerbaijani #Jewish war hero and also the story of #Muslim-#Jewish #coexistence and friendship

#Culture is a key dimension of #SustainableDevelopment

In this thread, we will show how #cities#GoodPractices have significantly contributed to achieving #SDGs as referred in our OBS 🔗obs.agenda21culture.net/en/home-grid and Guide agenda21culture.net/sites/default/…
#SDG11 aims at promoting the #sustainable #development of #cities

👉#SDG11 is the Goal that addresses #culture more directly, with Target 11.4 aiming at strengthening efforts to protect and safeguard the world’s #cultural and natural #heritage

#Listen2Cities #LocalizingSDGs
👉In #BeitSahour the revitalization of the historic Old City and its related #heritage has contributed to local #identity and #sustainable tourism

Great to have this work out on #worldlionday2020 #humanwildlifeconflict #coexistence with
@camthera @BPCTcamp @TraceyLRogers @tarongazoo @UNSWScience @unswbees
Congratulations to @camthera in particular (@CES_UNSW & @EERC_UNSW), on his first #PhD publication in @CommsBio nature.com/articles/s4200…
#HumanWildlifeConflict is a major cause of #lion and #largecarnivore decline, and it's exciting to contribute a potential tool to the #nonlethal toolkit that might help to foster #coexistence.

“Other than breathing, it appears all #Jewish rights on the Temple Mount have been stripped away” >> my @LegInsurrection post from 2015. Very sad that not much has changed since then 😢 #TishaBAv legalinsurrection.com/2015/07/jewish…
@LegInsurrection This year the Waqf, Jordanian authorities & the PA did everything they could to prevent devout #Jews from visiting the holiest site to #Judaism on #TishaBAv & ensured that violent clashes would occur on this holy day for Muslims & Jews 😡 #ReligiousFreedom #TempleMount #Prayer 1/
@LegInsurrection Until #Jews can freely visit (& pray!) at their holy sites w/out needing armed security escorts & w/out fearing for their lives, there will never be peace 😢 #coexistence #TishaBAv 2/
