The Global 健康 Nexus on Climate Change 和 污染
污染 kills nine million people each year and sickens many more, mostly in poorer nations. The global health effects of climate change are less well quantified, but also increasing 同 lower-income countries again bearing the brunt of greater food insecurity, increased rates of chronic respiratory illnesses, and shifts in malarial zones. CFR’s Global 健康, 经济学, and Development Roundtable 系列 held a discussion on the global health nexus between climate change and pollution and how a more coherent approach to these issues can advance progress at a time when some policymakers, especially in the United States, are unmoved 通过 the environmental, health, 和 economic consequences expected in the coming decades.
The featured speaker for this discussion was Dr. Philip J. L和rigan, dean for global health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and recent co-chair of the Lancet Commission on 污染 和 健康.
