It is expected to increase by another 1. Even if the minimum predicted increase takes place, it will be larger than any century-long trend in the last 10 years. The principal reason for the global increase in temperatures is a century and a half of industrialization, with the burning of ever-greater quantities of oil, gasoline, and coal; the cutting of forests; and use of certain farming methods.
Climatic changes already are estimated to cause overdeaths annually. Link to study on burden of disease from climate change That estimate includes deaths as a result of extreme weather conditions, which may be occurring with increased frequency. Changes in temperature and rainfall conditions also may influence transmission patterns for many diseases, including water-related diseases, such as diarrhoea, and vector-borne infections, including malaria.
Finally, climate change may affect patterns of food production, which in turn can have health impacts in terms of rates of malnutrition. There is further evidence that unmitigated greenhouse gas emissions would increase disease burdens in the coming decades.
The risks are concentrated in the poorest populations, who have contributed the least to the problem of greenhouse gas emissions.
Over a decade ago, most countries joined an international treaty — the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change — to begin to consider what can be done to reduce global warming and to cope with whatever temperature increases are inevitable. Inthe Kyoto Protocol, which has more powerful and legally binding measures, was developed by governments as an addition to the treaty.
This protocol came into force on 16 February In addition to addressing the root causes of climate change, it is also important to take action to adapt to a changing climate. This includes actions that immediately improve the health of the poorest communities and also to reduce their vulnerability to climate change effects in the future.The directory provides links to web-accessible resources in categories of relevance to policymaking.
