|Title:||Population Dynamics and Climate Change (Report of the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM))|
|Description:||According to the introduction to this report, which collects papers presented at a meeting held in June 2009, "[t]he fact that, according to the latest United Nations projections, the world's population had reached 6.8 billion in July of 2009, and that it continues to grow by an additional
78 million people a year, is highly relevant to understanding environmental
change. Chapters address the "need for a broader, more nuanced, evidence-based perspective on how consideration of population dynamics can inform climate change responses, including both mitigation and adaptation.
"Issues of health, gender inequality, migration and displacement and urbanization all link population dynamics with climate change and need to be incorporated in planning and implementing global and country-level responses. These issues are particularly relevant in the development of adaptation plans, including in assessing the costs of adaptation."
