Managing the health effects of climate change

This report considers what the main obstacles to effective adaptation to the effects of climate change on health might be. It focuses on six aspects that connect climate change to adverse health outcomes: changing patterns of disease and mortality, food, water and sanitation, shelter and human settlements, extreme events, and population and migration. Each has been considered in relation to five key challenges to form a policy response framework: informational, poverty and equity-related, technological, sociopolitical, and institutional.
