Climate change and health

  1. 1. A PRESENTATION BY Isaiah OwolabiHACEY’s Health Initiative
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION As a developing nation, Nigeria is particularly sensitive to the effects of Climate Change. A large part of our economy depends on natural resources which–like our people–are particularly vulnerable to Climate Change. When those resources are affected, whole communities are implicated.
  3. 3. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? Proper nutrition (or lack of it) is already a problem in many areas of Nigeria Due to- Low agricultural yields, Population growth or Poverty.
  4. 4. What will happen here if Climate Change is not addressed? Malaria (mosquitoes) and sleeping sickness (tsetse fly), will increase with the patterns of rainfall and temperature. Cerebro-spinal meningitis is linked to higher temperatures and low humidity. Skin cancer, from direct ultra-violet radiation Heatstroke and Lung disorders.
  5. 5. Why should we be concerned? The health impacts of Climate Change on the Nigerian population will be far ranging.  Water quality will suffer, as will the human and animal populations that depend on them.  Human health will be vulnerable when food production, livestock, agriculture, etc. are all affected.
