This initiative was established in 2019. The objective of this network is to provide policy, service, and research direction as they relate to the implications of climate change for global homelessness – drawing on the best available expertise globally alongside systematic reviews of the literature.
The foundational work of this group was made possible by the Living Within the Earth’s Carrying Capacity program, supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
The network was established by Dr. Sean Kidd, Chief Psychologist and Senior Scientist at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto.
