Informing adaptation strategy through mapping the dynamics linking climate change, health and other human systems

Drawing on systems science, partners in Lebanon, Mozambique, Georgia, and Costa Rica (part of Research Unit on Health in Situations of Fragility, RUHF) are collaborating in mapping the interrelationships between the factors shaping climate and health in each setting with the aim of identifying key entry points and pathways to develop targeted adaptation and resilience measures.

 

'Informing adaptation strategy through mapping the dynamics linking climate change, health and other human systems' report

 

Our dissemination event

CoP26 provided a crucial forum to address the multi-sectoral challenges posed by the climate crisis. Together with colleagues from the University of Edinburgh, the team presented country case studies in a global webinar. The webinar provided insights for national adaptation strategies by systematic mapping of the dynamic linkages between climate, environment, health, agriculture, and economic development in four very different fragile settings.

Target Audience

Researchers committed to exploring interface of different disciplines; policy makers seeking to foster inter-sectoral action; all interested in unpacking the complexity of the climate crisis.
