Abstract

[Extract] Climate change is already having a substantial impact on our planet, our health, our ability to produce food and sustainable ways for energy production, and life - now, and in the future. It is an important area for all health promotion practitioners. I was drawn to this book as it answers some key questions for me, both personally and professionally, for climate change action in policy, sustainable and healthy communities, and behaviour change. This book provides a useful overview of key issues and elements relevant to health and climate change. It is clearly written and deals with the complex issue of climate and health in very practical ways. The editors and authors offer a broad range of expertise in public health, health promotion, multidisciplinary public health workforce development, climate and health initiatives, and social marketing. Although many of the authors are based in the UK, they have made the book relevant to health practitioners around the world.
