Description

Climate change will affect health in most countries in Asia and the Pacific. It will challenge the public health community at the global, regional and national levels with emerging diseases and existing diseases increasing and spreading geographically. This study aims to improve the understanding of the human health dimensions of climate change and how projects in areas other than health, such as agriculture, water financing programs, and disaster risk reduction need to account explicitly for the health impacts of their interventions.
