Health impacts of climate change in urban areas: a pathway to adaptation
MetadataShow full item record
Human health and well-being will be increasingly affected by climate change over the course of this century. Adaptation is a critical, yet highly complex challenge. This thesis develops a pathway for this challenge through the use of systems approaches within a Health Impact Assessment framework. Applied to the dual challenge of climate change and urbanisation in Perth, the research provides recommendations to create a healthier, more climate-resilient city for future generations.
