Climate Change in a Growing, Urbanizing World: Understanding the Demography of Adaptation (Book Launch)
Understanding population dynamics is critical to avoiding static perceptions of human and environmental vulnerability. Changes that affect the size, distribution, and composition of human populations also affect both the nature of vulnerability and adjustments in natural or human systems in response to environmental change.

‘The Demography of Adaptation to Climate Change,’ a new edited volume from the United Nations Population Fund, International Institute for Environment and Development, and El Colegio de Mexico explores these themes. Three of the book’s contributors share perspectives on the importance of population dynamics for adaptation, ways to use available population and census data in assessing vulnerability and resilience, and the application of these approaches for urban vulnerability and adaptation in Malawi and Indonesia.
