Gender and Adaptation to Climate Change: Perspectives from a Pastoral Community in Gujarat, India

In this paper, the authors examine the socially situated perspective of women in the Maldhari pastoral community in Gujarat, Western India. Results show that climate adaptation pathways traditionally utilized by the Maldharis are constrained by the institutional, policy and social context in which the community is placed, with specific impacts on women. This limitation to traditional adaptation pathways in the face of climate vulnerability triggers coping responses for survival, livelihoods and food security, which produce gendered burdens especially in terms of women's work.

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.

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.

The Climate and Migration Coalition

The Climate and Migration Coalition is led by Climate Outreach, a charitable company.  The coalition provides a newsletter with well balanced material on issues around climate change and migration. The organization’s goal is to ensure a people centered policy response at the national and international level by:

•    Building support for policies that allow people to strengthen their survival capacity through migration
•    Ensuring adequate assistance and protection for people displaced internally and across borders as a consequence of slow and sudden onset disasters

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.
