Adaptation to the health impacts of air pollution and climate extremes in Latin American cities

A new project dealing with health impacts of air pollution and climate change is now starting. This proposal creates synergies with the projects "South American Emissions, Megacities and Climate (SAEMC)" coordinated by Laura Gallardo and "Collaborative Research: Using coupled atmospheric-human systems to study present & future health impacts of & adaptation to heat stress & air pollution in Los Angeles & Mexico City", coordinated by Linda Mearns. The proposed project will use their regional emissions and climate change scenarios to provide assessments of the diverse exposures and vulnerabilities to the health impacts of air pollution and heat, worsened by climate change, in four large Latin American cities. Using quantitative and qualitative methods, this research aims at delimiting and explaining the spatial nature of vulnerabilities and adaptive capacities that exist in the present day. It seeks to explore the projection of vulnerabilities into the future based on climate change scenarios for Buenos Aires, Santiago and Bogotá generated by SAEMC and for Mexico City created by Mearns’ group. Insights of this research will be used to compare vulnerability and adaptive capacity in urban areas of different countries.

Organics in Aerosols from South American M-cities

 
Call for collaboration

The atmospheric particulate matter is an important environmental issue due to its impact on human health and because they play a major role in the climate. The levels of organic compounds have been studied and the emission sources have been suggested. Groups interested in collaboration for the determination of organic compounds in particulate matter contact Prof. Pérola Vasconcellos at University of São Paulo: e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
