The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

Moving the Needle: A discussion on research and strategic programming at the nexus of climate and health

Climate variability and change present both immediate and future risks to human health. Changes in the frequency, location, and severity of climate impacts are placing more people at risk from health-related hazards such as diminished air quality, extreme heat and violent weather events, and vector borne diseases. How are climate and health practitioners meeting this challenge? What tools are in use for countries to effectively and systematically monitor climate impacts on the health sector? Where are the research gaps and how do we address them?

Join USAID for the June Adaptation Community Meeting as they explore these important questions and seek actionable solutions for strategic programming and future research on the complex interactions between human health and a changing climate.

When: Thursday, 13 June; 4-5:30 pm EDT
Where: Webinar (online)
