From Typhoid to Tsunamis: Samoan Children in a Changing World (pp. 447-458) $45.00
Authors:  Graeme Lindsay, Teuila Percival, and Alistair Woodward
Samoa consists of two main islands, has a tropical climate
and is located in the Southwest Pacific. The objectives of
this paper are to give an overview of climate change in
Samoa; outline what health means from the Samoan
perspective as this is important when discussing the
possible impacts on child health from climate change;
discuss adaptation and mitigation initiatives and potential
implications for child health. We will use a case study of
the devastating 2009 Tsunami to outline impacts of natural
disaster on child health in rural areas. While climate change
is likely to bring new challenges to Samoan children, many
of the problems that are projected to affect Samoa’s
children such as diarrhoeal illnesses, water insecurity and
dengue fever are already on hand. However, they do have
the potential to be exacerbated in a changing world.
Adaptation in many areas is already underway in Samoa,
but much remains to be done. Little is known about aspects
that affect rural children in particular, although that they are
likely to be more susceptible to water insecurity, cyclones
and other extreme coastal events. Baseline data on health
conditions has been identified as an area that needs
strengthening as part of adaptation measures.
