The causes and effects of climate change are strongly interrelated with human
health. As a result, public and private international organizations have been
addressing the issue, especially in urban areas, studying the impacts generated
by climate change and its consequences on human health. This article reviews the grey literature published by public and private organizations working on climate change and health. Using the keywords climate change, health, ecosystem services, and urban resilience, 41 reports were selected to link climate change and cities, 30 for climate change and health, and 21 for ecosystem services and urban resilience. The selected documents were classified and analysed based on three categories related to conceptualizing the main topic and their contributions to the planning process of local governments.
The review identified some knowledge gaps related to the level of development
of methodological and conceptual framework and guidelines for policies.
As a result, implementing actions from local governments that address the
relationship of human health, urban resilience and ecosystem services in
contexts of climate change in cities is still weak.
