Identifying Gaps Stakeholder Needs Regarding the Climate-Health Connection

Identifying Gaps Stakeholder Needs Regarding the Climate-Health Connection

CLIMAS Lead:  

As part of the Climate-Ready States and Cities Initiative, the CDC engaged 16 states and 2 large cities to implement a 5-step program Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE) in 2009. The program aimed to help communities prepare for the health effects of climate change. As BRACE ends, the CDC is now supporting the monitoring and evaluation of the efforts developed under BRACE: Climate and Health Adaptation Monitoring Program (CHAMP). To support these monitoring and evaluation efforts, we are working to map the Arizona network of climate/health advocates, to identify gaps stakeholders need regarding the climate-health connection, and to develop strategies to better support these efforts.
