Climate Change and the People's Health (Book Launch)

Various

Climate Change and the People’s Health is part of the Oxford University Press series “Small Books Big Ideas in Population Health”. The book focuses on climate change’s contribution to health inequities and introduces the concept of ‘consumptagenic systems’ – a new framework for understanding the common drivers of climate change, social inequity and poor health – how they interact and amplify one another. A key feature of the book is not on the problem but on pathways forward, using systems approaches to understand what can be done to mitigate future harm, and drawing on political science to understand the processes involved in moving this agenda forward.

This presentation will provide examples of such collaboration. It will discuss strategic considerations giving rise to these engagements, pitfalls that beset them, and ethical considerations that might inform the decision to form state-criminal partnerships.

Rebecca Colvin

Social conflict about land use change is regularly dysfunctional; people focus on defeating their opponents at the expense of securing a workable solution to how we should manage our land.
