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.

Does climate matter? An empirical study of interregional migration in China

The authosr developed a robust empirical approach based on a correlated random effects model and a prefecture‐level panel dataset which allows the study to account for both within province migration flows and prefecture‐specific characteristics, to study the role of local climate conditions in spurring interregional migration in China over the period 2000 to 2010.

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

Social protection as a strategy to address climate-induced migration

This paper aims to discuss the roles of social protection and identify key characteristics of social protection schemes which could effectively address climate-induced migration and attempts to derive recommendations for policy design.

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.

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.
