Planetary Health examined by Committee

07 March 2019

With increasing numbers of the world’s population expected to live in urban areas by 2030, the fourth session of the Committee’s Planetary Health inquiry will focus on cities and whether buildings are being planned and designed to meet the challenges posed by overheating and climate change.
