Energy and Resources Group, University of California, Berkeley, California 94720, USA.

Sanitation research focuses primarily on containing human waste and preventing disease; thus, it has traditionally been dominated by the fields of environmental engineering and public health. Over the past 20 years, however, the field has grown broader in scope and deeper in complexity, spanning diverse disciplinary perspectives. In this article, we review the current literature in the range of disciplines engaged with sanitation research in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Read More

Annu Rev Environ Resour 2007 ;32:345-373

Center for International Earth Science Information Network, Columbia University and Population-Environment Research Network, Palisades, New York 10964; email:

The interactions between human population dynamics and the environment have often been viewed mechanistically. This review elucidates the complexities and contextual specificities of population-environment relationships in a number of domains. It explores the ways in which demographers and other social scientists have sought to understand the relationships among a full range of population dynamics (e. Read More
