The Fifth International Conference on Countermeasures to Urban Heat Islands (IC2UHI), will be devoted to the science, engineering and public policies to help relieve the excess heat and air pollution in urban environments. It has long been recognized that the excessive heat and smog in many cities, the "Urban Heat Island" (UHI), is partly due to the choices of building materials, vegetation and urban design. Scientists, engineers, builders, architects, and government officials concerned with improving the urban environment are urged to participate in the 5th IC2UHI.

International Conference Migration, Environment and Climate: What risk inequalities?

Conference date(s): 22 October 2018 - 23 October 2018

The Centre national d’études spatiales (CNES), with the support of the Agence française de développement (AFD), the French Institute for Demographic Studies (INED) and the French Museum of Natural History (MNHN), is organizing an international conference on the links between human mobility, climate and environmental changes. The aim is to capture the complexity and multiplicity of interactions between migration and environment as brought to light by recent or ongoing research, taking explicit account of inequalities in the populations under study. The approach aims to be broad-based, and proposals are welcome not only from the field of demography but also from related disciplines (geography, anthropology, sociology, economics, epidemiology and political science).
