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?
