Climate Change, Human Health, and Social Stability: Addressing Interlinkages.

08:00 EDT 1st April 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Climate Change, Human Health, and Social Stability: Addressing Interlinkages."

Abundant historical evidence demonstrates how environmental changes can affect social stability and, in turn, human health. A rapidly growing body of literature, largely from political science and economics, is examining the potential for and consequences associated with social instability related to current climate change. However, comparatively little of this research incorporates the effects on human health or the role of health systems in influencing the magnitude and types of instability that could occur.

It may result from natural factors such as changes in the sun's intensity, natural processes within the climate system such as changes in ocean circulation, or human activities.

An animal or plant species in danger of extinction. Causes can include human activity, changing climate, or change in predator/prey ratios.
