Climate and Health Workshop in India briefed on Climate Services for Public Health by CPO’s Trtanj 22 September 2015

Climate and Health Workshop in India briefed on Climate Services for Public Health by CPO’s Trtanj

Juli Trtanj (OAR/CPO) will serve as a key resource person at a national capacity building initiative for climate and health in New Delhi, India from 22-24 September 2015. Trtanj will present a global overview of climate services for public health to an interdisciplinary group of scientists (climatologists, meteorologists, epidemiologists, public health and social development experts) at a workshop hosted by TARU Leading Edge, the Indian Meteorological Society, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. The overview will include a briefing on the concepts behind the National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS) and outcomes from the recent NOAA-lead Workshop on the Development of Climate Information Systems for Heat Health Early Warning in Chicago, including future heat health system pilots and research collaborations with India. The briefing will also include updates on NOAA’s collaborative efforts in water and vector-borne diseases, highlighting our vibrio forecasting work with the NOS Ecological Forecasting Services, and our work on cholera early warning in Bangladesh. Coverage of NOAA’s other international efforts with health connections, such as NWS/NCEP’s international work on monsoons, and our involvement with the Global Framework on Climate Services and the Group on Earth Observations will also be included.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
