A recent overview by the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean reveals that the region’s larger economies have been significantly affected by the global economic crisis in the following ways:
  • Reduction in both international demand and the terms of trade for the region’s goods and services
  • Increasing difficulties in accessing international finance.
  • Strong pressure on exchange rates.
  • Deterioration in labour markets, investment, and consumption.
This paper reflects on the commission’s findings in relation to statistics from a variety of sources including the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and the Economist. It highlights the countries in the region most at risk from the economic crisis, documenting changes in their economic growth, trade and financial sectors, and unemployment levels. It explores what the policy implications are for the region’s governments responding to the crisis and the wider implications for donors.

This book broadens and deepens understanding of a wide range of population-climate change linkages

Substantial resources are being dedicated to research and policy efforts to mitigate climate change and support adaptation to the current and future impacts of greenhouse gas emissions. Yet the lack of consideration of population dynamics hampers the development of stronger, more effective solutions to the challenges climate change poses. The papers in this volume provide a substantive and methodological guide to the current state of knowledge on issues such as population growth and size and emissions; population vulnerability and adaptation linked to health, gender disparities and children; migration and urbanisation; and the data and analytical needs for the next stages of policy-relevant research.

In 2010 and beyond, as the world develops and implements new climate-change strategies, and as the need for action heightens every day, this volume will help to fill one of the most significant gaps in the global response to date
