With support from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, the Institute of Behavioral Science and University of Colorado Population Center are hosting the 2nd annual workshop on Climate, Migration and Health. This year’s sub-theme is “Connections through Urbanization” with a geographic focus on Latin America.
The two-day workshop, held in Boulder, Colorado, USA and will bring together approximately ten researchers and policy communicators to showcase innovative research on urbanization, climate and health.
Workshop applicants must have a current research project in Latin America and should aim to come to the workshop to present ongoing work. We will also spend time brainstorming broader knowledge gaps and specific research projects or proposals designed to fill those gaps.
Researchers from social and natural sciences are encouraged to apply. Funds are available for partial reimbursement for domestic travel and lodging. Applicants must be post-PhD. The aim is for an interdisciplinary mix of junior and senior scholars.
To be considered for this workshop, please send a CV and a complete paper, working draft, or an extended abstract (including data description, methods, and preliminary results) by February 19, 2016. Decisions will be made by March 11th.
