Resilience to Climate Change and Health Challenges: Interdisciplinary Perspectives

Conveners: Anat Rosenthal, BGU, Nadav Davidovitch, BGU,  & Maya Negev, University of Haifa

In this panel we explore examples of interdisciplinary approaches to climate change and health from high, middle and low income, countries. The panel addresses current facilitators, barriers and challenges to using interdisciplinary perspectives.

Climate change poses complex multi-faceted and multidisciplinary challenges, and Local Governments and Health systems around the world have a long way to prepare for climate change, both in mitigation and adaptation. However, climate changes studies are dominated by natural science methodologies. Multidisciplinary methods are singularly suited to deal with the far-reaching and consequential questions posed by climate change. Any move forward towards an adequate response to climate change requires not only more evidence in the natural sciences, but insights from mixed methods and qualitative studies relating to the experiences of the impact of climate change on local populations. Based on case studies from Australia, Malawi and Israel this session will showcase mixed-methods climate change research on vulnerability and resilience.
