Climate Change and Built Environment
Built environment is the infrastructure of cities and towns that includes transportation, roadways, buildings, and land-use. Built environment design and development can help mitigate climate change, support adaptation, and improve environment and public health. The more resilient the built environment, the less impact from climate change.
Climate Change and Risk Communication
Risk communication is essential for a number of different public and environmental health concerns – from Zika to climate change – communication is possibly the most important step in working to help prevent the next disaster.
Dear NEHA members,
We want to provide you with an update on the latest proposed legislation for Zika and a quick summary of the status of this growing health concern.
