Green spaces, air pollution and climate-related heat mortality in Latin American cities

Organization: University of California, Berkeley

Lead Researchers: Daniel Rodriguez

Year: 2020 - 2023

An interdisciplinary research team will use a mortality database for urban residents in nine Latin American countries to examine the impact of climate change, particularly extreme heat events, on urban population mortality. They will also examine the modifying effect of green space and fine particulate matter on the association between heat events and mortality.
