Adaptation to climate change impacts on human, animal and plant health

Description

This document was based on the general framework set out in the White Paper "Adapting to climate change: Towards a European framework for action" which proposed to increase the resilience of health and social systems to climate change and underlined the need to ensure adequate surveillance and control of the human, animal and plant health impacts of climate change. It introduces the potential evolution of the European Commission action to tackle impacts of climate change on human, animal and plant health. In particular by pointing out how the implementation of the European Parliament's and Council's Decision on serious cross-border threats to health will address the impacts of climate change on human health and by clarifying how existing and/or future legislation on animal, plant health and plant reproductive material will address the impacts of climate change.
