Abstract

The increasing consolidation and expansion of major highways in the state of São Paulo has accompanied intense processes of urbanization, industrialization, tourism development and population dynamics. These processes contribute to an accumulation of localized changes that impact on natural systems globally, which in turn accelerate the effects of climate change on cities. Set within the framework of 'urban global environmental change', the following study seeks to uncover the combined effects of these urban and environmental systems of change on the state of mental health and incidences of violence among urban communities, and to examine the extent of institutional intervention and community-based adaptation in these areas. The study combines statistical data analysis and focus-group interviews in an investigation of ten municipalities along an axis composed of three highways - Tamoios (SP-99), Carvalho Pinto/Ayrton Senna (SP 070) and D. Pedro I (SP 65) - which service the North Coast and Bragança Paulista regions. (AU)
