Climate change effects on the epidemiology of infectious diseases and the impacts on northern societies (CLINF)

Description:

To identify and investigate the effects of climate change on the geographic distribution and epidemiology of human and animal infectious diseases throughout the Nordic region and Russia. Particularly, CLINF studies such climate change effects on northern animal husbandry households in the light of socio-economic and managerial conditions.

To turn new understanding regarding climate change effects on the geographic distribution and epidemiology of climate sensitive infections into practical tools for decision-makers responsible for the development of northern societies, both by providing relevant data in an accessible form, and by developing an early warning system for climate sensitive infections at the local level.
