A short reading by the Population Reference Bureau on climate change impacts and population demographics. This reading discusses potential climate change impacts on human communities with respect to changes in size and distribution of the global population. It also includes discussions on urbanization and population growth in developing countries and population trends like aging.
Students will learn about projected population trends and impacts of climate change on human communities globally. They will also understand the link between urbanization, demographic changes and global warming.
Use this tool to help your students find answers to:
- Discuss the impacts of climate change on human communities.
- “Urbanization, aging, and growth in less developed countries.. are likely to increase humanity’s vulnerability to climate change” Discuss in the classroom.
