11 June 2014 - 13 June 2014
Wolfgang Lutz was invited to participate at the 47th Scientific Meeting of the Italian Statistical Society (SIS 2014), that will be held between 11-13 June 2014 at the University of Cagliari in Italy. The Italian Statistical Society organizes these meetings every two years inviting academics and scholars in the fields of statistical methodology, probability, social and economic statistics, biostatistics and demography to discuss latest methodological and applied statistical research.
Under the title "Population – Environment Interactions", Lutz will discuss the effects of human population on the natural environment and the vulnerability of human populations to such possible future changes. With a time horizon of up to 2050, the possible effects of environmental change on the population outlook are typically perceived marginal by international population experts, perhaps because they rarely deal with environmental issues and consider social and economic factors as the key drivers in their analyses. In this presentation, Wolfgang Lutz will address the environmental change issue directly by analyzing the global population and human capital outlook for the rest of this century in a broader context of sustainable development and global environmental change. He will present new population scenarios by age, sex, and level of educational attainment as a major step forward in the environmental change research community.
