Health Care Facilities Resilient to Climate Change Impacts
Paterson, P.B., Berry, P., Ebi, K., et al. (2014). Health Care Facilities Resilient to Climate Change Impacts. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. 11(12): 13097–13116.
This article focuses on how to make healthcare facilities more resilient to climate change and how to identify gaps in preparedness. It also addresses how “healthcare facilities contribute significantly to greenhouse gas emissions through the energy intensive 24-hour operation of services and to environmental degradation through the high demand of healthcare services and operations on natural resources (energy, water, and food procurement).”
