Climate Change Impacts on Public Health

Climate Change Indicators

Consequences Environmental Problems Discomfort to cardio-vascular patients, Water quality problem, Salinity intrusion , Reduced access to water-Sanitation. Humid weather, Drainage congestion, Water logging, Vector/mosquito breeding

Health Impacts

Temperature Hot Spells, rise Drought, Increased evaporation, Low dry weather flow in river, Rainfall increase Increased intensity

Intensification/ aggravation of cardiovascular diseases, Increased incidence of water-sanitation related diseases Acute respiratory infection (Asthma), malaria, dengue

Environmental Problems

Health Impacts

Severe Floods Inundation (In coastal zone 62% areas have an elevation less than 3m and 86% less than 5m and limited polders ), Severe Cyclones with tidal surge Death (1991 cyclone caused 138,882 deaths), Injury, Damage to property

Displacement of people, contamination of water, insanitation, unemployment

Increased incidence of water-sanitation related diseases including diarrhea, Malnutrition

Sea level rise

Widespread poverty, constrained institutional development, and loss of cultivable land and agricultural production. Inundation (sea level rise of Salinity intrusion, 32 cm by 2050), Displacement water-sanitation of population problems

Increased incidence of water-sanitation related diseases
