Tools and Methods for Integrating Health into Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Policies and Strategies
This paper presents the results of a scoping review of the literature on existing tools and methods for integrating health concerns into climate change adaptation and mitigation policies and strategies. It is intended for public health actors who may be involved in the development of such policies and strategies. It may also be of interest to other actors who would like to further integrate the health dimension into their actions aimed at combating climate change.
The review of the scientific and grey literature identified thirteen tools and methods, which were classified into five categories:
- Impact assessment tools;
- Tools for integrating health into adaptation policies and strategies;
- Conceptual frameworks;
- Other methodological approaches.
This document briefly describes these tools and methods and provides hyperlinks for stakeholders interested in maximizing the health benefits of climate change mitigation or adaptation scenarios and wishing to learn more.
