Climate Change policy

According to you, which health impact due to climate change should be prioritized on the United Nations agenda?

CC policy priorities


My understanding is that UN must move from a on-size-fits-all agenda. From the lectures we have learnt that regions differs widely in both the disease that they will be more sensitive too, as well as the disasters they will be subjected to.
Meanwhile, I see a common origin in the hydrological, either origin or strong influence- of health impacts. Maybe rather that an specific health impact, this CC should be link to other programs as infrastructure development (water infrastructure being the greatest identified need in the next 30 years) and integrated water management. As such the evaluation of health impact of initiatives should be inserted on water related to harvest as much as possible cobenefits and resources already engaged in UN actions.
