Journal: The Future of Children

The Future of Children, a collaboration between Princeton University and the Brookings Institution, publishes a journal that translates social science research into practical information for policymakers and practitioners.

The journal's Spring 2016 issue is dedicated to children and climate change. I haven't dug into the issue yet, but a glance at the table of contents shows articles that touch on scientific and social issues from multiple angles:

  • The Science of Climate Change
  • Temperature Extremes, Health, and Human Capital
  • Climate Change, Conflict, and Children
  • Impacts of Natural Disasters on Children
  • Pollution and Climate Change
  • Implications of Climate Change for Children in Developing Countries
  • Weighing the Costs and Benefits of Climate Change to Our Children
  • Mobilizing Political Action on Behalf of Future Generations

I'm looking forward to reading the articles in this issue of Future of Children. The issue can be downloaded for free as a single PDF or separate articles here.
