Climate change has the potential to alter the magnitude and pattern of climate-sensitive health outcomes. The extent to which health burdens will shift will depend not just on
climate change, but also on a wide range of factors that could increase or decrease future vulnerabilities and capacities, such as aging populations, socioeconomic change, urbanization trends, and the extent to which societies implement measures to reduce inequities.

This webinar will review these factors and their role in the robustness of projections of health risks under different greenhouse gas emission pathways.
