NEHA's Policy Statement on Climate Change

Climate change is affecting environmental health—the quality of air, food, and water in the communities where we live, work, and play (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). NEHA recognizes climate change as a world-wide environmental health problem that has health and safety impacts to individuals and communities. Environmental health professionals improve and protect the public’s health and create and sustain healthy communities.

Emergency Response and Climate Change

Climate change creates a need for preparedness and an understanding of emergency response, because in a warming climate, disaster strikes more often. With wild fires, rising sea levels and unpredictable weather patterns on the rise, it is essential to have environmental health professionals equipped with the best information to work within these unprecedented conditions.
