dc.description.abstractClimate change, considered the biggest global health threat of the 21st century, will pose challenges to the public health community at the global, national, and local levels. Improved understanding of the human health dimensions of climate change will enhance countries’ capacity to cope with and respond to challenges. While such responses will be developed through interventions by the health sector itself, adaptation responses will also involve other sectors such as urban development, water, agriculture, education, and disaster risk management.
