Climate modification is an emerging risk to global public health. The consequences of rising temperatures and much more extreme heat waves and floods are included by direct impacts resulting. Warmer temperatures and a far more variable weather can affect agricultural production as well as food availability, the accessibility of water that is clean and sanitation, and also the transmission of water-borne diseases and vector. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that local weather switch might be creating more than 150,000 deaths per year plus these risks are likely to increase considerably down the road. Increasing recognition of the linkages between weather & wellness is essential to getting filtering actions against climate-associated health risks.
Training course on Human Health and Climate Change will provide participants with the capacity to realize the linkages in between climate change and health and also provide them with tools and methods to manage the effect of climate change on wellness. Instances are drawn, whenever doable, from both created as well as developing nations and cases studies will perform as a foundation for learning
Duration: 5 Days
Who Can Attend?
Development experts from NGOs, agencies, donor organizations and government departments tasked with addressing the problems presented by climate change, along with other businesses, that are starting to tackle human health and climate change in their need and work to create their abilities even more in this specific place.
By the conclusion of the program, the participants shall be in a position to:
1. Understand the physicochemical time frame of anthropogenic climate change along with the dynamics of its
1. Raise consciousness of the influences of climate change on health, to prompt action for public health and wellbeing measures
2. Gain a clear understanding of the risks and also adverse effects of climate change on health
3. Be in a position to encourage as well as facilitate both behavioral shift and societal assistance for actions taken to lessen greenhouse gas emissions.
4. Provide leadership within supporting comprehensive and rapid approaches for mitigation and adaptation which will both enhance health and reduce vulnerability.
