South Asian Network for Development and Environmental Economics (SANDEE)

The South Asian Network for Development and Environmental Economics (SANDEE) is a regional network that seeks to bring together analysts from the different countries in South Asia to address its development-environment problems. SANDEE's mission is to strengthen the capacity of individuals and institutions in South Asia to undertake research on the inter-linkages among economic development, poverty, and environmental change and to disseminate practical information that can be applied to development policies. SANDEE's current activities include: A small research grants program that focuses on three areas: Poverty and natural resource management, Economics of pollution management and health, and Sharing of regional and global resources; Training in environment and natural resource economics and the use of policy instruments; Peer networking and inter-country learning through biannual meetings; and, Information dissemination through publications and newsletters.

"Circulations Migratoires Transsahariennes et développement urbain au Sahara Central (CIRMIDES)

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.

Integrating Environmental Context into DHS Analysis While Protecting Participant Confidentiality: A New Remote Sensing Method

This article aimed to address the strategies commonly used by researchers who use the DHS use a variety of approaches for spatial data merging, and proposes a theory‐based and straightforward alternative for adding contextual environmental variables to survey data that maintains confidentiality of those surveyed.

Research Project Database

The Research Project Database is a searchable listing of applied urban climate research projects. Projects are typically added by practitioners who seek the services of researchers. On the other hand, researchers can look through the database to find practitioners in need of their particular skill sets. Students can also use the database to search for thesis, term paper, or other applied term paper projects.

Subsistence migration: Smallholder food security and the maintenance of agriculture through mobility in Nicaragua

Based on mixed‐methods fieldwork in north‐western Nicaragua, we find that rather than produce remittance landscapes, or an abandonment of agriculture, subsistence migration,” or mobility to maintain small‐scale agriculture as a food security strategy, help families to persist in agriculture in a context of worsening environmental and structural conditions.

Aging Human Populations: Good for Us, Good for the Earth

The article clarifies the many environmental benefits of smaller populations, concluding that reversing population growth would abate species extinctions, avoid overconsumption of fresh water and many other resources, and mitigate climate change by lowering greenhouse gas emissions.

Migration as a human affair: Integrating individual stress thresholds into quantitative models of climate migration

The authors used coastal Bangladesh as case study, and extracted data from a seasonal 1500-household survey to generate a mobility index for households living in five coastal villages on the highly-exposed southwest coast.

Climate Plan Clearinghouse

This page is one-stop shopping for climate plans across the continent. Eventually, users will be able to conduct word-string and/or keyword searches of the plans, enabling efficient queries for different climate risks (e.g. urban heat islands) or discreet adaptation and/or mitigation measures (e.g. living shorelines). Currently, users can download plans that have already been uploaded by the Hub administrator.

Gendered space and climate resilience in informal settlements in Khulna City, Bangladesh

In this paper, a qualitative study exploring conditions of the urban poor in Khulna, Bangladesh, argues that gendered constraints in both inhabiting and shaping spaces is an underlying cause of differential climate resilience; alternatively, planning climate-resilient spaces can be seen as a fundamental change contributing to transformative adaptation.

The Overpopulation Project

Over the past two centuries Earth’s human population has doubled, and doubled again, and nearly doubled yet again, increasing from 1 billion to over 7.6 billion people. This huge increase is at the root of grave global environmental problems, from climate change to mass species extinction. With help from a generous grant from the Global Challenges Foundation, The Overpopulation Project studies the environmental impacts of overpopulation and explores humane policies to end population growth around the world.
