Who We Are
Climate change is a significant and emerging threat to public health and community social cohesion and may get worse as planet warms, oceans expand and the sea level rises, floods and droughts become more frequent and intense as it changes the way societies must look at protecting vulnerable populations such as those with mental health challenges, chronic illnesses and in humanitarian situations.
There is an emerging trend as climate change threatens to undermine the gains in development as it ravages livelihoods affecting managment of resources, affecting health and productivity, leading to food insecurity, conflicts, increasing poverty, creating internal displacement of populations and increase in refugee crises as people flee areas of extreme climate events such as floods and droughts. The relationship between climate change and health is complex, to some extent not so direct. The Shifting weather patterns have already driven up food prices and withered crop harvests in this region. In the recent years climate change has become a social, economical, environmental and political challenge facing humankind both at local, regional and global level.
