Climate change and health Think Tank

Climate change challenges to health


The Academy of Science brought together young researchers and leading scientists to discuss climate change and its impacts on health.

The 2014 Theo Murphy High Flyers Think Tank Climate change challenges to health: risks and opportunities begins today in Brisbane and will ask researchers to look at the risks, solutions and opportunities that will matter for population health in a changing climate.

The researchers looked at five key areas:

• Temperature and extreme weather events
• Infectious disease
• Food and water supplies
• Livelihood and disadvantage
• Security, social instability and conflict



and there’s a report on the Think Tank in The Guardian – click here.
