Abstract

This review considers how population geographies currently contribute, and might further contribute, to understanding how populations are connected to climate change. Progress has been made in understanding the empirical and theoretical dimensions of climate change through research on the demographics of climate change, theories of vulnerability and adaptation, and frameworks concerned with risk, and governmentality. I conclude with a call to reflect upon and develop policy and activist strategies sensitive to the increasingly important role of global networks.
