Climate Change and Urban Health in Latin America: Workshop

Below you can find materials developed as part of SALURBAL's workshop on Climate and Urban Health in Latin America, hosted in March 2023 at La Casa de la Universidad de California in Mexico City. This workshop provided a conceptual grounding for project researchers in the connections between climate change on health in urban areas in Latin America.

Members of the SALURBAL team also discussed available data on historical and future temperature exposure, and our analytical approach and findings to-date on the health impacts of extreme temperatures in cities across the region.
