  • Gaps in protection: the actual challenge in malaria elimination. [Review]
    Malar J. 2023 Feb 07; 22(1):46.Paaijmans KP, Lobo NF
  • Progress in reducing both malaria cases and deaths has stalled with regression seen in many geographies. While significant attention is given to the contributing challenges of drug and insecticide resistance, 'residual' malaria is often diminished to transmission resulting from outdoor-biting or zoophagic/opportunistic mosquito vectors. These specific vector bionomic traits are only part of the p…

  • Health of Post-Institutionalized Haitian Children Adopted to the United States. [Journal Article]
    Matern Child Health J. 2023 Feb 04 [Online ahead of print]George PE, Gamble AV, … Eckerle JK
  • CONCLUSIONS: Children adopted from Haiti face complex medical challenges undoubtedly related to the country's low socioeconomic status (SES) and the impact of recurrent natural disasters and governmental neglect on public health infrastructure. Appropriate care is critical in preventing and avoiding transmission of infectious diseases in adoptees and family members. The high incidence of anemia and elevated lead levels may further exacerbate the developmental effects of early institutional deprivation.

  • The Royal Tajo Opera Theatre of Lisbon: From architecture to acoustics. [Journal Article]
    J Acoust Soc Am. 2023 Jan; 153(1):400.Tronchin L, Bevilacqua A
  • Throughout history, many buildings of significant cultural value have been lost due to natural disasters (e.g., earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, subsidence, etc.) as well as other human causes (e.g., fire, war destruction, etc.). The Tajo Opera theatre was hit by an earthquake that led to the collapse of the entire structure eight months after it was built. This paper deals with the revival of th…
  • Insights into geospatial heterogeneity of landslide susceptibility based on the SHAP-XGBoost model. [Journal Article]
    J Environ Manage. 2023 Jan 31; 332:117357.Zhang J, Ma X, … Wen H
  • The spatial heterogeneity of landslide influencing factors is the main reason for the poor generalizability of the susceptibility evaluation model. This study aimed to construct a comprehensive explanatory framework for landslide susceptibility evaluation models based on the SHAP (SHapley Additive explanation)-XGBoost (eXtreme Gradient Boosting) algorithm, analyze the regional characteristics and…
  • The public finance response to floods of local governments in Italy. [Journal Article]
    J Environ Manage. 2023 Feb 01; 332:117352.Lodi C, Marin G, Modica M
  • This paper aims to empirically test the dynamics of budget outcomes of Italian municipalities in the aftermath of floods by accounting for heterogeneous levels of resilience and vulnerability to natural disasters. Our findings are based on a dynamic difference-in-differences model after propensity score matching. They point to substantial impacts in terms of increased capital expenditure and reve…
  • Possible factors determining global-scale patterns of crop yield sensitivity to drought. [Journal Article]
    PLoS One. 2023; 18(2):e0281287.Hendrawan VSA, Komori D, Kim W
  • In recent decades, droughts have critically limited crop production, inducing food system shocks regionally and globally. It was estimated that crop yield variability in around one-third to three-fourths of global harvested areas is explained significantly by drought, revealing the notable vulnerability of crop systems to such climate-related stressors. However, understanding the key factors dete…
  • The impact of climate-related disasters on children's communication and wellbeing: Addressing Sustainable Development Goals. [Journal Article]

  • Coral reef structural complexity loss exposes coastlines to waves. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep. 2023 Jan 30; 13(1):1683.Carlot J, Vousdoukas M, … Parravicini V
  • Coral reefs offer natural coastal protection by attenuating incoming waves. Here we combine unique coral disturbance-recovery observations with hydrodynamic models to quantify how structural complexity dissipates incoming wave energy. We find that if the structural complexity of healthy coral reefs conditions is halved, extreme wave run-up heights that occur once in a 100-years will become 50 tim…
