Global Spatial Population Projections

Global Spatial Population Projections: What Can be Done Now

September 20, 2013 | New York City, NY, USA

In recognition of the conjecture that it matters how people act and where they act, there is a need to compare the spatial distribution of human population and biodiversity. Greatest biodiversity exists around the equator and although population growth began in the 25 – 45 latitude of the northern hemisphere, subsequent spikes have moved south towards the equator. Against this backdrop, recognition of climate change impacts as well as where people live and how they act becomes increasingly more important.

Two questions for the workshop:

1. For population projections, what can be done now?
2. What type of collaborative projects can we generate?

Location: Roosevelt House, Hunter College-City University of New York, New York, USA
Organizers: Peter J. Marcotullio, Hunter College-CUNY, and Corrie Griffith, UGEC
