In the last few decades (particularly after 1950), the World’s population doubled from three billion to six billion plus population. This increased the pressure on land use and resource depletion continued. Further, it fuelled with habitat destruction, loss of biodiversity, water scarcity and water pollution, air pollution, global warming and climate change across the globe. The impact of these problems is more prominent in developing regions like South Asia. South Asia is a region with great diversities in population growth, socio-economic development and facing serious population and environmental problems. The most threatened areas are grasslands of Sundarbans, coastal areas and mountain forest ecosystems of the Himalayas. Large sections of the population of South Asian region lack basic human needs such as sufficient food and nutrition, clean water, adequate shelter, and access to education and health care. However, the current changing environment and frequent occurrence of extreme weather events posing a serious challenge to socio-economic development, food security, livelihoods and health hazards among the population in the region along with the resilience mechanisms. So, it is necessary to investigate these issues through the lenses of research, which may help in formulating better policies and program at the local and regional level. We herein would like to invite researchers from the international community working in the areas of environment, climate change and population dynamics to contribute to this special issue on “Environment and Population Dynamics in South Asia”. This issue will broadly cover the issues related to population dynamics and its relationship with various environmental issues (but may not be limited to) such as climate change and resilience, natural disaster, disaster management, waste management, WASH, urbanization and air pollution, climate change and migration, climate change, and health etc.

If any researcher who is interested in submitting a paper for consideration in this special issue of IJPS, please submit your paper by 30 September, 2019 and highlight the phrase “for special issue” in the cover letter.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been previously published, nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. All papers are refereed through a double-blind, rigorous peer review process. All manuscripts must be written in English. Before you start to prepare your paper, please read the Author Guidelines. All papers must be submitted online. To submit a paper, please go to the Online Submission System.

Call for Guest Editors and Special Issues on Population Dynamics and Challenges in Asia

 

We would like to launch a series of special issues related to population dynamics and challenges in Asia.

Asia is the most populous continent in the world with great diversities in population growth and socioeconomic development. Many Asian countries witnessed a faster pace of urbanization, population aging than most today's developed countries; and most of them will likely grow old before they grow rich. However, the poor health care system, inadequate pension coverage, poor nutrition, poor facilities and infrastructure, and poor living environments, will impose tremendous challenges for Asian countries. In order to provide scholarly articles to help address the challenges, International Journal of Population Studies is proud to launch series of special issues. These special issues will focus on, but not limited to the following themes:

(1) Population dynamics

(2) Data quality in population and health surveys

(3) Changes of family support system

(4) Successful aging

(5) Aging-friendly city

(6) Pension system reforms

(7) Urbanization, climate change, and health

(8) Economics of aging

(9) Population aging and healthcare challenges

(10) Reproductive health

(11) Child nutrition, health and development

(12) Gender equity and women’s empowerment

(13) Labor force migration in Asian countries and consequences

(14) Youth and development

(15) Low fertility and socioeconomic development

(16) Population growth and sustainable development goals

(17) Dynamics and projections of family household

(18) Business of aging

(19) Marriage matching

(20) Vulnerable populations

If any researcher is interested to coordinate this special issue or suggest new issue with social significance, please send your request to editorial@whioce.com for more information. We especially welcome multi-culture or cross-nation comparative studies.
