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.

Global population, development aspirations and fallacies (Population mondiale, aspirations de développement et logiques fallacieuses)

The world is on an unsustainable path of growth. Technology and earlier fertility decline are critical for longer-term environmental purposes but will not resolve the immediate social or environmental crises. For George Martine, a redefinition of “development” and a radically different use of scarce global resources are the most pressing issues to be addressed.

Le dividende démographique en Afrique Premiers signes et estimation par la méthode de décomposition

L’amorce d’une transition Démographique en Afrique relance aujourd’hui le débat sur les  liens  entre  population  et  développement.  Pour  l’essentiel,  ce  nouveau  débat  s’est  cristallisé autour de la perspective d’un dividende démographique. Contrairement aux thèses malthusiennes axées sur les effets d’une forte croissance démographique, ce nouvel argument invoque la structure par âge des populations. La question dans ce contexte reste de savoir si les pays africains tireront parti des transitions démographiques en cours pour accélérer leur développement socioéconomique à l’instar des Tigres asiatiques.
