Climate change will cause increasing health threats on our communities within the next 20 years, especially in the poorest countries and among vulnerable populations.
Health adaptation must therefore become a priority in policy making, and actions must be taken now to avoid unacceptable and unsustainable damages in the near future to our society, families and children.–
Position: Research Professor
Main Research Field: Economic valuation of climate change impacts on human health for policy guidance, including costs and benefits of adaptation policies.
