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.

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.

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.

Vulnerability of informal settlements in the context of rapid urbanization and climate change

This paper aims to contribute to broader theoretical knowledge on urban vulnerability and resilience in the face of climate change and rapid urbanization, by applying participatory modelling techniques to a particular case study of an informal settlement in Durban, South Africa.

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.

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.

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

The authors developed a robust empirical approach based on a correlated random effects model and a prefecture‐level panel dataset which allows 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.

Leveraging endogenous climate resilience: urban adaptation in Pacific Small Island Developing States

Findings from community consultations across 16 communities within the settings of two ongoing participatory action research projects conducted by UN-Habitat and research partners from Australian universities in Honiara, Solomon Islands, and Port Vila, Vanuatu, demonstrate the critical role of endogenous modes of resilience, as well as the strong correlation between these spaces and sub-city climate vulnerability.

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.
