The VII ESW annual national research conference on “Climate Change and Global Health Management” organized by ESW Society Khajuraho during 01 & 02 February, 2020 at UNESCO Heritage site Khajuraho, India. Large-scale and human environmental hazards to global health include climate change, stratospheric ozone depletion, changes in ecosystems due to loss of biodiversity, changes in hydrological systems and the supplies of freshwater, land degradation, urbanization, and stresses on food-producing systems. Policy choices are guided by several principles. These include considerations of equity, efficiency and political feasibility. To make informed decisions about climate change and global health, policy-makers will need timely and useful information about the possible consequences of climate change. Once policy-makers have received input from the impact assessment community, they must integrate this information into a broader policy portfolio. Climate change, however, should not be considered in isolation from other global environmental stresses. Climate change should therefore be viewed as part of the larger challenge of sustainable development. Some have argued that the existence of scientific uncertainties precludes policy makers from taking action today in anticipation of climate change. The outcomes of these decisions may be affected by climate change. This book is highly useful for researchers, teachers, students, policy maker and environmentalist engage in climate change and global health management.
