Urban areas and human health

Urban areas face specific climate change challenges which differ from those likely to be experienced in the surrounding rural region. These include exacerbated heat waves, floods and water scarcity problems. While urban areas will generally be exposed to the same regional climate as the surrounding area, the physical form and socio-economic activity of the city can alter the effect of exposure on a local scale. Human health impacts are concentrated in, but not limited to urban areas.
