TRAC3 lab members Malcom Araos and Stephanie Austin have published a new article in the International Journal of Health Services (IJHS). Entitled “Public Health Adaptation to Climate Change in Large Cities: A Global Baseline”, the authors “develop and apply systematic methods to assess the state of public health adaptation in 401 urban areas globally with more than 1 million people, creating the first global baseline for urban public health adaptation.”
Initial findings are exciting and encourage further research – they found “that only 10% of the sampled urban areas report any public health adaptation initiatives.”
The article is located here.
