Recent WHO Publication: Lessons learned on health adaptation to climate variability and change
February 25th, 2016
This news item aims to share a particularly relevant recent publication from WHO, Lessons learned on health adaptation to climate variability and change (experiences across low and middle income countries) by Kristie Ebi and Mariam Otmani del Barrio. This report looks closely at health adaptation projects with the goal of identifying lessons learned and good practice examples, as well as the potential for scaling up projects and any key barriers and challenges to scaling up. To meet these goals, the authors conducted a desk review and synthesis of multinational health adaptation projects and collected qualitative data through interviews and focus group discussions.
This report will be incorporated into the global operational framework for climate change adaptation in the health sector, developed by the WHO.
