UCLA FSPH announced Wednesday that it has created the UCLA Center for Healthy Climate Solutions to combat "the most significant public health disaster we face."

"Los Angeles is a city that tackles our toughest challenges by tapping into the innovation and creativity in our own backyard, and this UCLA center will help us build a safer, cleaner and more equitable city and world," said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who is chair of C40 Cities, a global organization of almost 100 cities committed to action against climate change.

UCLA C-Solutions, as the center will be known, will collaborate with public officials and community partners, including the mayor's office, to advance research-based strategies for strengthening communities' ability to adapt to climate change's harmful health effects and slowing its impact.
