In recent years, several countries have focused on the projected scale of health impacts caused by climate change. The magnitude of health impacts and outcomes of climate change indicate a function of several interactions that occur during exposure to climate change-related variations in different weather patterns. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), the intensity and frequency of extreme events, such as storms, floods, droughts, and wildfires, are changing due to weather variability. These changes have an adverse impact on human health and wellbeing, health systems, and exacerbate health inequities that already exist within vulnerable populations.
This Special Issue aims to provide insight into innovative knowledge and tools on climate-related health risks by identifying the factors inherent to climate vulnerability, thereby considering the impact of climate change on human health, which entails the identification of vulnerable populations and communities with associated vulnerabilities.
