Child holding world

The Department of Health (DoH) in the Republic of Ireland has identified six climate scenarios with profound health implications. These include UV / sun exposure; air pollution; windstorms; heat / heatwaves; high precipitation/flooding; and cold snaps. 

It has invited views on the following: 

- Do the six climate scenarios identified represent the highest priority concerns and risks for the health sector? 

- Are there climate change-related risks or vulnerabilities that do not feature and should be included, and why? 

- Do you have additional suggestions for concrete and cost-effective adaptation actions for the - health sector?
