The Effect of Climate Change on Children Living on Pacific Islands (pp. 459-468) $45.00
Authors:  Emma Britton and Philippa Howden-Chapman
Climate change is projected to increase temperatures, sea
level rise and extreme weather events. Children living in
remote, low-lying Pacific Islands are particularly at risk
from the impacts of climate change, due to their physical,
environmental and socio-economic vulnerability. The
objective of this paper is to examine the potential health
effects of climate change and climate change related
migration on children in rural and remote areas, especially
those living in the Pacific Islands. The study group was
children living in rural and remote areas, particularly in the
Pacific Islands. A review of the literature on climate change
health impacts in rural and remote areas was conducted,
focusing on those living in the Pacific Islands and on
climate change related migration. The results suggest
climate change is likely to increase heat related and extreme
weather related mortality and morbidity and increase
infectious disease incidence and transmission in the Pacific
Islands, especially in children. Climate change is also likely
to impact indirectly on child health by affecting water, food
and financial security and by increasing inequalities. By
2050, approximately 235,000 people on Kiribati, 20,000
people on Tuvalu and 800 people on Tokelau are likely to
be at high risk of climate-change-related migration and the
adverse impacts this can have on mental, physical and
social health. Climate change is likely to have a significant
impact on the health of children living in rural and remote
areas, such as the Pacific Islands. It is therefore imperative
that resources are targeted to enhance the adaptive capacity
of these areas.
