What the interactions between climate and socioeconomic changes could mean
for population health over coming decades.

Kristie L. Ebi is director of the Center for Health and the Global
Environment (CHanGE), and Rohm and Haas Endowed Professor in Public Health
Sciences at the University of Washington. She has been conducting research
and practice on the health risks of climate variability and change for over
twenty years, focusing on understanding sources of vulnerability,
estimating current and future health risks of climate change, and designing
adaptation policies and measures to reduce the risks of climate change in
multi-stressor environments. She has been an author on multiple national
and international climate change assessments, including the IPCC Special
Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C. She co-chairs the International
Committee On New Integrated Climate change assessment Scenarios (ICONICS)
that created five scenarios of socioeconomic development over this
century. [image:
