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.
