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.

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.

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.

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.

Climate Change and Cities

The Urban Climate Change Research Network’s Second Assessment Report on Climate Change in Cities (ARC3.2) is the second in a series of global, science–based reports to examine climate risk, adaptation, and mitigation efforts in cities. The book explicitly seeks to explore the implications of changing climatic conditions on critical urban physical and social infrastructure sectors and intersectoral concerns. The primary purpose of ARC3.2 is to inform the development and implementation of effective urban climate change policies, leveraging ongoing and planned investments for populations in cities of developing, emerging, and developed countries. This volume, like its predecessor, will be invaluable for a range of audiences involved with climate change and cities: mayors, city officials and policymakers; urban planners; policymakers charged with developing climate change mitigation and adaptation programs; and a broad spectrum of researchers and advanced students in the environmental sciences.  (http://uccrn.org/what-we-do/arc3-report/upcoming-arc3-2/)

Informing notions of climate change adaptation: a case study of everyday gendered realities of climate change adaptation in an informal settlement in Dar es Salaam

In this paper, evidence from a small-scale case study of a flood-prone informal settlement in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania was presented to examines the gendered dynamics of climate change adaptation in a rapidly urbanizing area of the global South.

Malthus, forever? (Malthus, toujours d’actualité ?)

Malthus is long dead, but his ideas live on and are still widely debated today. The author argues that Malthus was probably right, after all.
