Mobility as the human face of climate change: Analysing heterogeneity in climate migration andpolicy frameworks Ghent University
The project first seeks to improve our understanding of the way climate (both sudden and slow onset hazards) influences migration behavior (both internally and internationally) differently across countries. Second, it will map the heterogeneous policy response to climate migration at various
levels (national, bilateral and regional) as well as differences in its effectiveness across countries.
THE REAL ESTATE FINANCE-URBAN CLIMATE RISK NEXUS: A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF MIAMI, ROTTERDAM, AND SINGAPORE. KU Leuven
The connections between real estate governance and urban climate risk management represent a critical missing link between urban research, policy-making, and practice.

These highly particular variables shape an increasingly globalized real ...
The success of routine police patrol in deterring crime is unclear and existing police patrol routing strategies are naive. Developing and implementing effective police patrol transcends the boundaries of criminology and geography. Here, we adopt an interdisciplinary approach to police patrol and use police patrol vehicle movement data to evaluate police patrol efficacy and develop complex police patrol routing algorithms.
