About this Project

Status: Completed
Operational Plan: 2013 - 2014

Studies show that a combination of substandard housing, overcrowding, poor indoor air quality, and other environmental factors lead to poor health outcomes for indigenous populations. These conditions will continue to be exacerbated by climate change. Through the 2011-12 , CEC funds have supported the development of a model and methods for improving air quality in the homes of high-risk children in indigenous communities. This project continues in 2013-14 to support this study to generate a robust dataset that can support recommendations for healthy homes projects in North America.
