Landscape of tools and initiatives in East Africa and beyond aiming at bridging climate - health and rapid wash response.

Field experiences: WaSH response and climate information.

How best could we predict
Climate driven disease outbreaks
to better respond in WaSH?

Outbreaks of certain diseases are on the rise. How is climate variability and global warming linked to this increase according to the state of the art research? Could we not only anticipate floods and droughts but also outbreaks triggered by changes in rainfall patterns and temperature? Which tools are currently being used and which close to provide data that could anticipate the outbreak?

Immerge yourself with the latest, most innovative tools that professionals, institutions and agencies are currently using to link health and climate. Let’s start taking the first steps towards a faster, more predictable outbreak prediction to plan better responses in East Africa, engage communities in a more meaningful way, and identify the challenges that are hindering a faster progress.
