Workshop: Migration, Climate and Health: Disasters and Displacement
April 9, 2015 @ 8:00 am - April 10, 2015 @ 5:00 pm
With support from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, the Institute of Behavioral Science and University of Colorado Population Center are hosting the 1st annual workshop on Climate, Migration and Health. This year's sub-theme is natural disasters and displacement.
The two-day workshop, held in Boulder, Colorado, will bring together 10 researchers and 2 policy communicators to showcase innovative research on natural disasters, displacement and health, as well as to identify gaps and develop collaborations. We aim to bring together researchers on migration-climate and climate-health to consider the under-studied 3-way connection betweeen migration-climate-health. Researchers from social and natural sciences are encouraged to apply. Funds are available for partial reimbursement for domestic travel and lodging. Applicants must be post-PhD and we aim for an interdisciplinary mix of junior and senior scholars.
