Director Jason Corburn Guest Editor of IJERPH Special Issue “Urban Place and Health Equity”
Increasingly, policy responses to some of our most pressing urban environmental health risks, such as climate change, inadequate water and sanitation, informal settlements, are taking a place based approach. What does this mean? What 21st century technologies and analytic methods might offer insights for measuring health and place, and which might present new place-based hazards and risks? In an increasingly virtually connected, seemingly place-less world, will place matter less and less for health? Can a place-focused approach address urban environmental injustice issues? Can citizen science techniques, where those most familiar with a place measure and track issues, improve environmental health science and policy? This Special Issue is accepting papers to help investigate and address these and related questions of place and health for 21st century environmental health.
