2015 Climate Change and Health Resiliency Report

Abstract

Funded by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) Climate Change Program is part of a national effort to anticipate and prepare for human health effects related to global and local climate change. CDC’s Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE) framework is focused on integrating epidemiological data and climate change models to develop projections, identify vulnerabilities, and inform public health planning. The national effort includes the participation and collaboration of sixteen states and two cities. Five New England states, plus New York and New York City participate in a regional collaborative of BRACE programs.
