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.

Health Disorder of Climate Migrants in Khulna City: An Urban Slum Perspective

In the last decade, the population in Khulna City, Bangladesh increased by more than 20 per cent due to migration from nearby climate vulnerable districts. This study explores the health disorders of climate migrants occupying the urban slums and squats of the city area.

Human mobility in the context of climate change and disasters: a South American approach

This paper shows that in South American states, human mobility in the context of disasters and climate change endangers the lives of millions of people and their livelihoods and reveals that disasters are triggers of displacement and affect human mobility.

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.

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.

Water stress and human migration: a global, georeferenced review of empirical research

This report assesses and maps 184 peer-reviewed, empirical research articles selected for their focus on linkages between water stress and human migration. First and most importantly, this literature asserts that migration is universal. Migration is an extremely common social process and is normal in almost every society on earth. Moreover, migration is not a pathological response to environmental change. Environment- influenced migration is rarely (if ever) a resource threat to the regions to which people move. The literature does, however, observe that negative social outcomes can result from narratives that stigmatize migrants and/or cast migrants as a security threat – especially when these narratives are used to justify increased surveillance and monitoring of these people.
