The CGGE Population & Natural Resources module examines the growth, decline, and movement of human populations over time, and how this affects the availability of resources such as food and water. The conceptual framework introduces some of the theories and ideas used by geographers to analyze population and resources, emphasizing concepts such as urbanization, sustainable development, and political economy. Each case study explores a geographic question about population and natural resources in the context of a particular region or country. The module's collaborative projects offer opportunities for students to discuss the case studies and engage in geographic learning with students in different countries.

The CGGE Population & Natural Resources module's collaborative projects are designed to connect geography classes in different countries for online learning and are adaptable to a wide range of learning contexts.

If you wish to find a collaborator in a different region or country, you will first need to register your collaboration (no charge) with the AAG.
