With support from the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) this Guide focuses on adaptation, mitigation & development. It particularly looks at the relationship between climate change and other development sectors such as agriculture & food security, natural resource management, poverty & vulnerability, governance, health, gender, finance, & low carbon energy.
Bad for development: the health impacts of climate change
Scientist with slide

As the World Health Organization conference on health and climate takes place in Geneva, two blog posts on the complexities of development in the Indian Sundarbans and the fight against Ebola in Africa highlight the links between the two sectors.

Upasona Ghosh, Senior Research Officer at the Institute of Health Management Research works to explore and understand the uncertainties faced by the people of the Sundarbans region, due to climatic events, not only in direct relation to community health, but also to the other social determinants, such as livelihood and food security.

Mao Amis, Executive Director of African Centre for a Green Economy, explores the lessons that we can learn from the current Ebola outbreak when it comes to managing other diseases in the face of climate change.
