In a recent United Nations (UN) report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and a recent analysis by the World Health Organization (WHO), climate-related health emergencies are most prominently on the rise in Africa, where more than half of regional public health events in the past 20 years are linked to climate variables, and climate-related health events have increased in frequency by 25% over the past decade.
