Management of Emerging Public Health Issues and Risks: Multidisciplinary Approaches to the Changing Environment addresses the threats facing the rapidly changing world and provides guidance on how to manage risks in relation to population health. Unlike conventional and recognized risks (major, industrial, and natural), emerging risks are characterized by low or non-existent scientific knowledge, high levels of uncertainty as to how to counter them, and varying levels of acceptability by competent authorities and exposed populations. This book provides methods and global case studies on the transdisciplinary approaches used for the characterization, analysis, and management of emerging risks. It will be useful for public health researchers, policymakers, and students, and will also be ideal for those working in emergency management, risk management, security, environmental health, nanomaterials, and food science.
