OJIMA, Ricardo. The demographic dimension of climate change: climate change scenarios and population growth trends. Rev. bras. estud. popul. [online]. 2011, vol.28, n.2, pp. 389-403. ISSN 0102-3098. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-30982011000200009.
Climate change has been ever more present in political, economic and social discourse. It has achieved high relevance for society, especially for demographers. A better understanding of the demographic dynamic inherent to climate change scenarios is required for more conscientious debates. There are gaps, however, to be covered for both climate sciences and population studies. This paper seeks to relocate the subject from the environmental field to a broader arena of what could be a demography of the climate change.
