Vulnerability to Climate Change: a Regional Perspective of Demographic and Socioeconomic Impacts
The objective of this paper is to present the state of the art in the discussion about the relationships among demographic dynamics, economic dynamics and climate change, as well as the impacts, on vulnerability profiles, of the adaptive capacity of the population, in the case of Brazil. The article seeks to answer the following questions: what is known about the effects of climate change in Brazil? What do we still need to know? How can public policies reduce vulnerability and enhance the population?s capacity to adapt to these changes? A central issue in this discussion is the effort to pursue the development of integrated and interdisciplinary methodologies in building scenarios useful for informing public policy and regional planning. Based on this discussion, issues will be raised for a future research agenda on the subject, within Brazilian demographics. (?)
