Climate Change and Human Health Course.( 04th -08th September)

Event: Climate Change and Human Health Course

Climate change is an emerging threat to global public health. Direct impacts resulting include the effects of rising temperatures and more intense heat waves and floods. Warmer temperatures and a more variable climate can impact agricultural production and food availability, the availability of clean water and sanitation, and the transmission of vector and water-borne diseases. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that climate change may already be causing over 150,000 deaths per year and these risks are expected to increase substantially in the future. Increasing awareness of the linkages between climate and health is fundamental to taking protective actions against climate related health risks.
Training course on Climate Change and Human Health will provide participants with the ability to recognize the linkages between climate change and health and provide them with methods and tools to manage the impact of climate change on health. Examples will be drawn, whenever possible, from both developed and developing countries and cases studies will serve as a basis for learning.

5 Days
