USGCRP Climate & Health Assessment
- Public Comment Period Is Now Closed -
Climate change threatens human health and well-being in many ways. The draft report, The Impacts of Climate Change on Human Health in the United States: A Scientific Assessment (available to download below), was developed by USGCRP’s Interagency Group on Climate Change and Human Health as part of the sustained National Climate Assessment and as called for under the President’s Climate Action Plan. This assessment report is intended to present a comprehensive, evidence-based, and, where possible, quantitative estimation of observed and projected public health impacts related to climate change in the United States. Once finalized (expected early 2016), the report will provide needed context for understanding Americans’ changing health risks.
The public comment period is now closed and we are no longer accepting comments on the draft report. Thank you to all those who provided feedback on the draft, your input is greatly appreciated. Comments and responses will be available when the final report is published.
