Resource Information
This study utilises the latest climate change projections for the West Midlands Administrative Region to predict the likely effects of changing temperature and precipitation on human health in the region over the Twenty First Century. Given the resources available the study as a whole should be viewed as a scoping report, highlighting where future work is required. However, this summary of future health effects is sufficiently detailed to help shape climate change adaptation strategies in the West Midlands. In particular this document will help stakeholders understand how health inequalities could worsen due to changes in our climate. It will inform action that ensures adaptation measures are developed to protect the health of the most deprived in our society.
