The health impacts of climate change are important and increasing concerns for citizens living in urban areas. With the emerging risk of climate change, the health impacts are related to socioeconomic damage and vulnerability including individual health status, occupational risk, social inequality, as well as community health. Most people around the world live in urban areas and understanding how climate change will affect health is an important issue for policy makers, urban planners, and public health institutions. In addition, it is a challenging task for academic researchers to predict the unknown effects of climate change.
This Special Issue plans to provide an overview of the most recent advances in the field of public health, environmental studies, urban studies, and occupational health and safety. It aims to cover promising, recent, and innovative research studies on scientific analyses, evaluation, projection, policy issues, and strategies related to climate change and health in urban areas. Topics to be covered in this Special Issue may include, but are not limited to: the impacts of climate change on public health; health vulnerability and socioeconomic vulnerability to climate change; policy mechanisms and evaluation to mitigate the negative impacts of public health; economic analysis about public health impacts and socioeconomic changes; estimation about mortality related to climate change.
