      Change (UNFCCC) secretariat has produced this book to highlight the concerns and needs of developing countries in adapting to the effects of climate change. This book outlines the impact of climate change in four developing country regions: Africa, Asia, Latin America and small island developing States; the vulnerability of these regions. Death decreases the population while migration increases or decreases the population of the certain areas. Death. Death is the permanent end of life of biological organisms. It is the natural process that occurs after birth. We cannot stop death process. It is one of the major factors that affects the population change.

    Setting the stage. Demographers rarely define culture, but when they reference it in their work they often portray it as a shared set of norms, attitudes, beliefs and practices (e.g., Carlson et al , Kalmijn and Tubergen ). 2 Anthropologists commonly define culture as a patterned set of meanings shared by a social group or population (Hannerz, ; Geertz, ; Fricke, ).   Overview. All cultures change through time. No culture is static. However, most cultures are basically conservative in that they tend to resist change. Some resist more than others by enacting laws for the preservation and protection of traditional cultural patterns while putting up barriers to alien ideas and things.

Cross-cultural understanding, along with local market knowledge, lends itself the production of more effective marketing strategy and example, high quality and culturally sensitive translations of websites, brochures, and other assets are essential. There is divergence of opinion regarding the consequences of population growth for economic development. Some view rapid population growth as a real problem while others assert that it is not a.

Population genetics predicts that within a large population, the number of random mutations will increase, whereas small populations have relatively fewer new random mutations.

Cultural transmission and the diffusion of innovations: Adoption dynamics indicate that biased cultural transmission is the predominate force in behavioral change and much of sociocultural evolution.

As more people are faced with unsanitary sources of food, disease and famine begin to take root.Effects of demographic changes would depend on the extent of anticipation for the demographic changes, nominal and real frictions, institutional aspects, and behavioral responses.

This unit addresses: (1) the definition of overpopulation (2) the causes of rapid population growth, (3) the consequences of rapid population growth, and (4) ac-tions and strategies that can be developed to solve problems caused by overpopula-tion.
