About this book

There is growing concern and also some controversy over the likely impact of climate change on a range of health problems. Examples are changes in vector-borne disease, increased mortality due to extremes in temperature and the impact of climate change on food supply. This work is the product of a meeting, held in October 1998, which brought together natural and social scientists, the business community, policy-makers, journalists and the public in general to discuss the effects that possible changes in climate may have on human health and the future challenge of research and monitoring.
