Preventing health needs related to the combined effects of conflict and climate change

While attention for the climate-security nexus has been growing, there has been relatively limited attention to the humanitarian implications of these changing risks, in particular on the health in conflicts situation exacerbating by climate change.

Even if ambitious mitigation measures are implemented, climate change will severely affect people’s lives and health conditions by multiplying the incidence of climate shocks and risks in fragile and conflict-affected places

In this context, adaptation and resilience efforts to prepare for the adverse health impacts of climate change and facilitate access to care will be essential.
