I november skrev forskere en kronikk i Aftenposten [http://www.aftenposten.no/meninger/kronikker/Naturvern-bistand-som-ikke-hjelper-6698647.html] om at lokalbefolkning i Afrika i dag utsettes for et ressursran som Norge bidrar til gjennom bistand til naturvern og klimatiltak. Dette har skapt debatt, og debatten fortsetter på dette seminaret.
