Ordering Tramadol Online ABSTRACT: Climate change and its impacts are now irrefutable and unavoidable.

Changes in global climate will have wide-ranging implications for human health.

Human systems will have to adapt. While our appreciation of health impacts and

vulnerability has increased, there has been relatively little attention given

to methods for tracking adaptation at a global scale. While systematic measurement

is relatively well established for mitigation, adaptation tracking is constrained

by its conceptual ‘messiness’, dealing with the complexity of defining what

adaptation actually looks like in practice and identifying indicators of success.

Adaptation may be only partially developed in response to climate change, actions

may be maladaptive and may be perceived differently by different actors, and success

may only be evident over many decades and across different spatial scales. In this

presentation, I will present the imperative and the challenge of developing methods

for adaptation tracking at the global scale, and present research efforts – with

a focus on the health impacts of climate change − to tackle this research and

policy gap. Adaptation itself, and in particular funding for adaptation, are

increasingly significant components of international climate negotiations and

domestic climate policies, and there is increasing evidence that governments,

industry, and NGOs are investing in adaptation. With this comes the necessity of

developing methodological tools and approaches to systematically tracking adaptation

efforts and outcomes.

Online Tramadol Store BRIEF BIO: Dr. Lea Berrang Ford is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography

at McGill University. With academic degrees in Geography (BSc Guelph), Environmental

Change (MSc Oxford), and Epidemiology (PhD Guelph), her research focuses on the environmental

determinants of global health and infectious disease. She has published extensively

and is the co-editor of the recently published Springer book, “Adaptation in Developed

Nations: from theory to practice.” Dr. Berrang Ford currently leads an international,

interdisciplinary research team investigating vulnerability and adaptation to the health

effects of climate change among remote Indigenous populations in Peru, Uganda, and

the Canadian Arctic, funded by the IDRC/Tri-Council IRIACC program. Her current research

also explores global determinants of emerging disease, and development of innovative

methodologies for adaptation tracking.
