Join the NW Climate and Health Network
Join a network of state and local public health practitioners and partners across the NW region (OR,ID,WA, & BC) who are interested in sharing information, resources, and opportunities for integrating climate change considerations into public health practice.
To join the network, please subscribe to the NW Climate and Health Network Listserv and tune-in to our quarterly webinar conference calls.
This network is co-hosted by the Oregon Climate and Health Program and the Washington Department of Health's Climate and Health Program.
Local Planning and Action
The Oregon Climate and Health Program has worked with five local health departments to assess climate and health risks, plan and implement local interventions.
The following are summaries of each of the 2013 climate adaptation plans created by participating health departments:
To view the full plans, go to our page on Publications and Training Materials.
Oregon's Climate and Health program developed a summary of lessons learned (pdf) and a new Resilience Planning Toolkit based on this local planning and assessment work.
In 2017, the same local health partners were awarded small grants to implement interventions in their adaptation plans. You can read a summary of the completed local climate and health interventions here:
