The University Committee on Environment's China Project is a multidisciplinary research program on energy use and environment in China and in Sino-American relations. The program explores integrated policy responses to greenhouse gas emissions by the world's two leading national sources, the U.S. and China, and to local air pollution problems of immediate concern in China. Over 50 researchers from the two countries comprise the team, working in disciplines that range across natural, applied, and health sciences, economics, public policy, law, political science, and business.

Cette équipe pluridisciplinaire de recherche est partie de l'hypothèse que la circulation des migrants subsahariens par le Sahara central est un enjeu de développement pour les territoires transfrontaliers constitués en réseaux urbains de migration. En croisant différentes sources et outils méthodologiques d'observation, de modélisation et de simulation, l'analyse a démontré que les différents aspects de durabilité tant sociale, spatiale qu'environnementale relèvent de ces deux processus associés que sont la circulation migratoire et le développement urbain.

The Population Situation Analysis provides the basis for an integrated appraisal of the population and reproductive health dynamics and their linkages and impacts on poverty, inequality and development. By integrating a micro and macro analytical approach, the PSA makes the interactions between individual behaviour and demographic dynamics explicit.
UNFPA: eLearning course. Population Situation Analysis
The primary focus of this course is introducing the user to the methods used by demographers to analyse population data, and the sources of this data and the methods used to collect this data.

Using empirical data from Ecuadorian Amazon between 1980 and 1999, this study examines the relationship between factors associated with land-use/land-cover change (LUCC) and fertility in tropical environments.

(Un) natural disaster: vulnerability, long-distance displacement, and the extended geography of neighborhood distress and attainment after Katrina
The study investigates a sample of vulnerable families displaced by Katrina, seven hundred low-income, mostly minority mothers in community college in New Orleans before Katrina were tracked across the country a year and a half later, compared to their neighborhoods before Katrina and the neighborhoods of those who returned or stayed behind.

Newcomers and oldtimers: Do classification methods matter in the study of amenity migration impacts in rural America?
Drawing on household survey data from nine communities in north-central Colorado, this study applies five migrant–non-migrant classification methods to examine how the differences/similarities between the migrants and non-migrants (or ‘‘newcomers’’ and ‘‘oldtimers’’) may vary across different approaches.

Using the 2015 meeting of the Population Association of America program, the author discussed the possible reason why demographers are reluctant to address population and environmental issues.
