Computational Demography for Climate Adaptation

“How can computational demographic methods be applied to climate adaptation?”

 

With the advent of climate change, human populations will be migrating in an unprecedented manner. To study this, advanced social science methods will need to be utilized. Computational Demography will be especially useful given its novel structure and ability to process vast amounts of complex data. Examples could range from analyzing safe spots in Bangladesh for people to move away from perpetual flooding or categorizing social vulnerability to wildfires in a population. This is how Computational Demography for Climate Adaptation will become especially useful.
