Population-Environment Research Network (PERN) Cyberseminar

WHAT

PERN Cyberseminar: Application of Gridded Population and Settlement Products in Geospatial Population-Environment Research

WHERE

Research in the field of population and environment increasingly requires high resolution geospatial data. In contrast to other types of population and settlement data based on administrative unit boundaries, gridded data sets provide consistent and comparable units of analysis. These data sets can be produced at a variety of spatial and temporal scales, paving the way for relevant research questions both about the impacts of human activities on the environment and, in turn, environmental impacts on human health, well-being and livelihoods. Such data are also important for monitoring the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This cyberseminar will focus on the fitness-for-use aspect of various gridded population and settlement products and their suitability for different application areas in population-environment studies. We will explore issues of uncertainty, endogeneity, temporal-explicitness, and spatial conformity in these data products along with scale and projection considerations. The seminar also provides examples of applications of gridded population and settlement products in population-environment research. The cyberseminar provides a platform for dynamic engagement between producer and end-user research communities to push forward the conversation on understanding the continued method development and advancement for integrating these products into the nexus of population-environment-climate studies.
