Technical Series on Adapting to Climate-Sensitive Health Impacts: Diarrhoeal Diseases
Publisher: World Health Organization
This guidance document outlines the process for conducting a climate change and health V&A assessment for diarrhoeal diseases. It describes the steps for:
- identifying populations and regions vulnerable to diarrhoeal diseases and the reasons for their vulnerability;
- establishing relevant baselines that can be analysed and monitored;
- conduct analyses to project how diarrhoeal diseases may be impacted in the future due to climate change; and
- identify appropriate responses to mitigate and monitor these risks over time.
