Unemployment, rural–urban migration and environmental regulation

When assessing the impact of environmental taxation to developing countries, the paper highlight the importance of modeling the features particular to, and the economic general equilibrium effects in those countries.

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.

Climate change, human impacts, and carbon sequestration in China

This paper explores the impacts of climate change and human activities on the structure and functioning of ecosystems, with emphasis on quantifying the magnitude and distribution of carbon (C) pools and C sequestration in China’s terrestrial ecosystems.

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.

Interannual variations in surface urban heat island intensity and associated drivers in China

For the period 2001–2015, the interannual variations in SUHI intensity (SUHII, derived from MODIS land surface temperature (LST) data (8-day composites of twice-daily observations), urban LST minus rural) and their relationships with climate variability and urbanization were analyzed in 31 cities in China.

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.

Adaptive migration: pluralising the debate on climate change and migration

In this paper, the multi-dimensional relationship between climate change and migration was explored as well as new perspectives and concepts to interpret the emerging theory of adaptive migration was advanced, through the use of the concept of pluralism.

Climatic conditions and human mortality: spatial and regional variation in the United States

The study answers threee three research questions: (1) Are the effects of climatic conditions on mortality independent from those of social conditions? (2) If yes, do these climatic effects vary spatially in the US? (3) If there are spatial variations of climatic associations in the US, how are they distributed?
