Accounting for Health Impacts of Climate Change Climate change will affect health in most countries in Asia and the Pacific. It will challenge the public health community at the global, regional and national levels with emerging diseases and existing diseases increasing and spreading geographically. This study aims to improve the understanding of the human health dimensions of climate change and how projects in areas other than health, such as agriculture, water financing programs, and disaster risk reduction need to account explicitly for the health impacts of their interventions.

About the Asian Development Bank ADB’s vision is an Asia and Pacific region free of poverty.

ADB is committed to reducing poverty through inclusive economic growth, environmentally sustainable growth, and regional integration. Based in Manila, ADB is owned by 67 members, including 48 from the region. Its main instruments for helping its developing member countries are policy dialogue, loans, equity investments, guarantees, grants, and technical assistance.
