Impact of climate change on human health
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Amandeep Kaur
Climate is the long-term statistical expression of short-term weather. It plays a significant role in people's health. Environmental consequences of climate change, such as extreme heat waves, rising sea-levels, changes in precipitation, intense hurricanes, and degraded air quality, affect directly and indirectly the human health. Climate change brings an increase in malnutrition, mental health conditions, infectious disease spread and even death. Appropriate mitigation and adaptation strategies will positively affect both climate change and the environment, and thereby positively affect human health. This paper focuses on the impacts of climate change on the physical, social, and psychological health of humans. Some strategies for mitigating and adapting to climate change are also explained.
