Perspectives on climate change and human health: An editorial introduction

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial

Abstract

While climate change and global warming are recognized as global issues, their effects vary across local geographic regions and populations via pathways of varying complexity, scale and timing. Over time, regional populations adapt to the local prevailing climate via physiological, behavioral, cultural and technological responses. However, extreme events tend to stress populations beyond these adaptation limits.
Therefore, the current special issue of Geography Research Forum aims to add more perspectives on the possible impacts of climate change on human health, at both the global and local scales.
