Climate Change and Rural Communities: Integrated study of physical and social impacts, health risks and adaptive options
Adaptation Research Grants Program
Rural Australia has begun to experience climate change impacts - which will increase in future. Losses in farm yields, water supplies, property, community morale and family incomes have diverse health effects.We will study the separate and joint effects of climate change and associated extreme events (e.g., bushfires) on selected health outcomes.Using integrative methods, we will clarify the main influences on health risks, their future projections, and how best to intervene to lessen risks.
