Climate Change and Health Vulnerability Indicators for California

2017

The Climate Change and Health Equity Program of the California Department of Public Health developed Climate Change and Health Vulnerability Indicators for California.  The indicators can help communities and local decision makers to better understand the populations that are more at risk for climate change induced or exacerbated health impacts. DPH suggests that the indicators can be used to screen and prioritize public health action to increase resilience. There are 21 indicators, organized into three domains: environmental exposures, population sensitivity, and adaptive capacity.
