Title

Global environmental change: The threat to human health

Author

Myers, Samuel S.

Description

As climate change threatens human health, humans continue to convert land, water, and ecosystem services for their own use. This practice triggers environmental change for which a population must adapt. The ability to adapt depends on the population's location and socioeconomic status. The challenge now is to reduce environmental change and to increase the resilience of populations to the impacts of change. Addressing the health impacts of global environmental change needs to be a priority for those with political will and financial resources.
