Environmental Change, Migration, and Conflict in Africa: A Critical Examination of the Interconnections

To examine how migration may act as an intervening and causal variable between environmental change and conflict, the author has combined climate-conflict and environment-migration research.

Does climate matter? An empirical study of interregional migration in China

Using a robust empirical approach based on a correlated random effects model and a prefecture-level panel dataset, the study focuses on the role of local climate conditions in spurring interregional migration in China over the period 2000 to 2010.

Rural-to-urban migration and the geography of absentee non-industrial private forest ownership: A case from southeast Ohio

The study analyzes patterns of absentee ownership of NIPF parcels to determine the characteristics of areas where absentee owners reside, using parcel data sourced from local governments in an 11-county study area in central and southeastern Ohio, along with a range of openly available data.

Incorporating Environmental and Natural Resources within Analyses of Multidimensional Poverty

How can multidimensional poverty measures that currently encompass social and economic dimensions be extended to include environmental deprivations that strike the poor simultaneously?  And can such extended measures better inform effective and integrated policy responses?  Research on joint Environmental and Natural Resources (ENR) and poverty issues is rich, and has contributed to bringing the  poverty-environment nexus to the fore.  Yet, no widely used multidimensional poverty measure identifies who and how the  socio-economically poor people are affected by ENR issues, at a large enough scale, and in ways that can respond to and inform public policies over the medium term.  This paper sets out how such a measure could be built.  In particular, it sets out how to include indicators of ENR deprivations into the profile of the joint deprivations people experience.  These deprivation profiles could then be used to compute multidimensional measures using the Alkire Foster (AF) methodology, with the difference that these would now encompass a subset of pertinent ENR deprivations. The paper clarifies the ENR data requirements for developing and analysing such a measure empirically.

Structuring the emotional landscape of climate change migration: Towards climate mobilities in geography

Aiming to resolve the disjuncture between ‘objective’ and subjective accounts of the environment, this paper uses the case of a Cambodian beggar to show how recent developments across three fields have laid the groundwork for the structural and emotional dimensions of climate change response to be engaged with under a coherent theoretical rubric.

Does climate matter? An empirical study of interregional migration in China

The authosr developed a robust empirical approach based on a correlated random effects model and a prefecture‐level panel dataset which allows the study to account for both within province migration flows and prefecture‐specific characteristics, to study the role of local climate conditions in spurring interregional migration in China over the period 2000 to 2010.

Gender and Adaptation to Climate Change: Perspectives from a Pastoral Community in Gujarat, India

In this paper, the authors examine the socially situated perspective of women in the Maldhari pastoral community in Gujarat, Western India. Results show that climate adaptation pathways traditionally utilized by the Maldharis are constrained by the institutional, policy and social context in which the community is placed, with specific impacts on women. This limitation to traditional adaptation pathways in the face of climate vulnerability triggers coping responses for survival, livelihoods and food security, which produce gendered burdens especially in terms of women's work.

Global estimates of mortality associated with long-term exposure to outdoor fine particulate matter

The estimates from this study are severalfold larger than previous calculations, suggesting that outdoor particulate air pollution is an even more important population health risk factor than previously thought.

Low-Carbon Gentrification: When Climate Change Encounters Residential Displacement

This article focuses on the emergence of ‘low‐carbon’ gentrification as a distinct urban phenomenon.  It develops a conceptual framework for scrutinizing low‐carbon gentrification, predicated upon insights from literatures on ecological gentrification and displacement.
