This project, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, was designed to provide policy, service, and research directions as they relate to this topic – drawing on the best available expertise globally alongside systematic reviews of the literature.
The first literature review was just published in the Journal of Urban Health:
Global Climate Implications for Homelessness: A Scoping Review
This work follows upon early work in this area published on the Homeless Hub:
Research Summary: Health of the Homeless and Climate Change
