Event Description:

Pop Dynamics and Environmental Change

A monthly seminar series exploring the links between people and their environments, in our fast changing global landscape. Co-sponsored by the Population Council, the Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) at Columbia University, the CUNY Institute for Demographic Research (CIDR), and the UN Population Division. This seminar series will feature key experts from the fields of demography, climate and public health sharing insights on their interdisciplinary work to measure and solve climate related challenges.

Climate Change and Socio-demographic dynamics in Mexico

May 11, 1-3pm
Newman Hall, Oak Room (room 203)
137 East 22nd Street, 2nd Fl
New York NY 10010

This presentation will discuss two studies on the impacts of climate change in Mexico. The first uses novel estimates of climate change impacts on agricultural productivity and food prices in Mexico to examine how this will differentially influence rural vs urban poverty in Mexico (2020-2040). It considers the implications of different socioeconomic trajectories for household poverty and whether mitigation policy matter for poverty reduction.  The second will examine the results of a scenario-based exercise on the impacts of climate change on Mexico’s future internal migration flows and population distribution.

Presenters: 

  • Landy Sanchez Peña (Center for Demographic, Urban, and Environmental Studies, El Colegio de Mexico)
  • Susana Adamo (CIESIN, The Earth Institute at Columbia University)
