Development programs worldwide are designed to protect vulnerable people, places, and livelihoods from climate change, but with smarter methods, these programs could be even more effective.
Shifting Burdens: Malaria Risks in a Hotter .
Paper | June 30, 2019
This analysis offers a new view of potential changes in malaria seasonality due to projected rising temperatures. The primary objective of this report is to provide health practitioners and development planners with information on the shifting national and regional incidence of malaria in Africa in response to rising temperatures.
Climate variability and change present both current and future risks to human health. The purpose of this report is to: Increase understanding of the influence of climate variability and change, specifically, rising temperatures on malaria exposure of populations in sub-Saharan Africa; and provide public health decision-makers and stakeholder practitioners with information to make decisions about malaria planning and programming under a changing climate.
