IPCC WG2, 2007, chapter 8: Human Health (2007)


Chapter on human health of IPCC WG2's 4th Assessment Report. This chapter describes the observed and projected health impacts of climate change, current and future populations at risk, and the strategies, policies and measures that have been and can be taken to reduce impacts. The chapter reviews the knowledge that has emerged since the Third Assessment Report. Published research continues to focus on effects in high-income countries, and there remain important gaps in information for the more vulnerable populations in low- and middle-income countries.
