Talk focuses on climate change and population movement in Asia


January 24, 2012

“Climate Change and Population Mobility in Southeast Asia” is the topic of a talk to be presented by Graeme Hugo, professor and director of the Australian Population and Migration Research Centre at the University of Adelaide. The talk will be held at 11:30 a.m., Jan. 27, in Wrigley Hall L1-04.

His presentation will focus on the Southeast Asia region and examine the potential effects that climate change is likely to have on migration patterns within the country and internationally. The talk is part of the Arizona State University Center for Population Dynamics Colloquium Series.

In his research, Hugo focused on case studies representing four primary hot spot areas in the region. In each area, the current patterns of internal and international migration were examined and future migration scenarios developed as a result of climate change.
