Population Studies. The contributions to this book provide many insights into different aspects of the population-development-environment issue. through a better understanding of urban population-development-environment (PDE) linkages. This meeting brought together scientists who have conducted research in individual cities (or in groups of cities) exploring these linkages, and who have offered concrete solutions to the problems of rapid urban growth in developing regions.

The book contains separate chapters on population policy and population-development-environment interrelations.

It accords due emphasis on the analysis of vital events, and also endeavours to initiate the readers to basic demographic techniques-an area that has remained somewhat neglected in population geography so far.

The relationships between human population dynamics and natural resources have been of interest at least as far back as Malthus, who argued that human population growth could outstrip the ability of the Earth to provide food. More recent scholars have noted that population-environment relationships are much more complex and are influenced by many more human activities than just procreation.

This book studies the origins and development of population geography as a discipline. It explores the key concepts, tools and statistical and demographic techniques that are widely employed in the analysis of population.
