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.

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.

Spatio-temporal analysis on built-up land expansion and population growth in the Yangtze River Delta Region, China: From a coordination perspective

The study used the ratio of the land expansion rate to the population growth rate as coordination degree to identify the trend of the “land-population” coordination with the case study of the Yangtze River Delta Region, China by means of spatial analysis and regression.

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.

Syllabus: WWS 594-0 - Urbanization, Migration and Climate Change

This course will examine two hallmark demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of the 21st century: urbanization and migration. It will place those changes in the context of climate-change adaptation and mitigation, and consider policy and programs that address these issues. The course will focus on changes in a developing-country context. Students will learn to examine theory and evidence (data and methods) that is used at the local, national and international level to understand populations at risk in the short and long-run, internal and international migration flows, city-growth and urban dynamism in the context of short and long-term climate-change related hazards (e.g., increased storms and associated flooding, sea-level rise, drought, changes in disease vectors, and so on).

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.
