Public Health,
Climate Change, and Urban Forestry

Californians, and in
particular certain populations in the Los Angeles region, face a number of adverse
health effects due to climate change. This presentation summarizes the latest
research on climate-health pathways, focusing on the most significant climate
impacts in the LA region, other environmental conditions, human behavior, and physical
and mental health. The presenters propose a framework for assessing and
addressing health vulnerability to climate change as part of a dynamic, complex
system that includes urban forestry, water, and environmental justice
considerations. The event will bring together practitioners and researchers in both
urban forestry and public health, along with other local leaders. A group discussion
could include ideas for new collaborations and integrated strategies for
building climate resiliency.
