Presenters: Ms Suruchi Bhadwal
This webinar organized on the occassion of World Environment Day, discussed the physical impacts of climate change on islands along with the observed and projected changes for the future, what makes islands a hotspot for vulnerability to climate change, whether the tag of 'sinking islands' and 'climate refugees' resonate with ground perspectives and an overview of the role of 'in situ climate adaptation'.

Title: Climate Change and Disease Dynamics in India
Author: Dogra, Nitish and Srivastava, Sangeet (Ed.)
Publisher: TERI (The Energy and Resource Institute)
Year of Publication: 2012
ISBN: 9788179934128 (HB.)
Abstract: Planetary health is today inextricably linked to population health. Climate change, an integral part of planetary health, is foremost among global environmental changes affecting human health. This mammoth challenge is characterized by the potential risk to cripple health systems worldwide and profoundly alter disease dynamics, thereby threatening the well-knit fabric as well as growth of society. Unfortunately, much of the evidence for these linkages has come largely from the developed world. By focusing on India, one of the significant developing countries of the global economy, Climate Change and Disease Dynamics in India aims to fill a crucial gap in the fields of climate science and public health.
The book is divided into three main aspects: fundamentals, impacts and applied. By examining these aspects and more, the book seeks to explore the multitude of issues related to climate change and disease dynamics; right from the basics to the bedside to the boardroom. Each chapter reviews relevant global and India-specific evidence, and also the implication of that knowledge in programmatic terms and policy implications.
Title: Climate Change and Human Health Scenario in South and Southeast Asia (Series: Advances in Asian Human-Environmental Research)
Author: Rais, Akhtar (Ed.)
Year of Publication: 2016
ISBN: 9783319236834 (HB.)
Abstract: This book is the first to present a regional analysis of climate change and human health, focusing on geographically and socio-economically distinct countries of South and Southeast Asia. It has a major focus on India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Thailand, Nepal and Taiwan.
Climate change is a significant and emerging threat to human health. lt represents a range of environmental hazards and will affect populations in both the developed and developing countries. In particular, it affects the regions where the current burden of climate-sensitive diseases are high, which is the case in South and Southeast Asian countries.

Video explains how climate change threatens human health - and why this outlook does not have to be the path we choose
This film explores the growing link between global environmental change, psychological and mental health challenges.
The film aims to raise awareness on the urgency of adaptation measures in the health sector to increase its resilience and responsiveness to negative consequences of climate change.
Both top-down and bottom-up actions must be taken now to mitigate current and future health threats
