"Conference on Climate Change and Health in Small Island Developing States: Focus on the Caribbean"
Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are among the most vulnerable countries in the world to the adverse effects of climate change, posing many challenges to public health, including increased illness and death from hurricanes, floods, heatwaves and droughts; water and food insecurity; increased transmission and spread of infectious diseases, diminished air quality; and adverse physical and mental health impacts on populations displaced by climate change disruptions.
From October 5 - 8, 2021, join the Caribbean community and our international partners for a four-day online conference of immersion in the science of climate change and health in the Caribbean, identifying knowledge gaps, posing solutions, resource sharing, and empowerment, as we work together to address the critical public health issue of climate change. Agendas and registration can be accessed through CVent.
