Abstract

This article examines the eco-scalar fix through the rescaling environmental governance and the politics of ecological boundaries in Alberta, Canada. It argues that this concept is a deeply political move that reconfigures power structures and prioritizes some resource uses over others in ways that can entrench, rather than resolve, the crises it was designed to address. Moreover, it suggests that, although watershed governance is often discursively depicted as an environmental strategy, it is often articulated with—and undertaken to address challenges that arise through—processes of uneven development
