Population, Health, and Environment
How do features of the natural, economic, and policy environments impact the health of a population? And how do the dynamics of population change affect the environment? Researchers at CPC explore these and other questions using a variety of tools and methods, from qualitative data collection and in-depth one-on-one interviews to combining machine learning with high resolution satellite imagery to develop fine-grained measures of the contexts in which individuals and families operate. This work helps us understand how and why population change goes hand in hand with environmental change, each affecting the health of the other.
