Climate change may adversely affect the population in many parts of the globe, in particular in developing countries where there is still substantial population growth. How do population dynamics figure into the conversations about climate? The contribution of population to climate change has been widely debated, and it is getting more attention leading up to the international meeting on climate change in Copenhagen in December 2009.

Join Karen Hardee, vice president of research at Population Action International, as she answers your questions about population and adaption to (or mitigation of) the effects of climate change.
