Abstract

Cities have a role in reducing the impacts on human health and well-being.  In recent years, there has been a growing call for cities to plan for healthy environments, especially in the context of climate change as the research provides concrete evidence on the health impacts of climate change.  Consequently, some cities have begun to formulate policy pertaining to human health and well-being in urban environments (Parnell et al, 2007; Rydin et al, 2012; Hallegatte and Corfee-Morlot, 2011; Brown, et al, 2012).  The results of a content analysis of municipal plans from 51 cities show that the best practices currently being used in cities to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change on human health, are predominantly in the areas of transportation and green infrastructure (Younger et al, 2008;Barton, 2009; Younger et al, 2008; Campbell-Lendrum and Corvalan, 2007).  However, policy related to climate change and health in cities is more than altering the physical environment; using the social determinants of health will enable cities to develop comprehensive and integrated policies, a recognition that some cities have already made.
