2020 Climate and Health in Oregon Report

This report describes climate hazards, recent events, and future climate projections. It documents cross-cutting health effects that disproportionately affect communities of color, tribal communities, farmworkers and underinvested rural communities. The report gives examples of public health action and emphasizes the importance of building social resilience.

2020 Climate Change and Social Resilience Report

In 2019, the Climate and Health Program and the Oregon Community Health Workers Association held a series of listening sessions in Hood River, Medford, and Portland. In these sessions, we asked community health workers and leaders about their perspectives on social resilience and how climate change is affecting their communities. This report synthesizes the themes from these conversations and identifies actions and investments that governmental agencies can take to strengthen social relationships in communities and increase climate resilience.

2020 Wildfire Adaptation Report

This report identifies ways in which the public health system is already adapting to the increasing number and severity of wildfires in Oregon and highlights opportunities for future climate adaptation.

Climate and Health Policy Paper

The Oregon Health Authority, Public Health Division prepared this Climate and Health Policy Paper in response to inquiries from the Oregon Governor's Carbon Policy Office about communities most impacted by health risks of climate hazards and co-pollutants of greenhouse gas emissions. The paper responds to five specific questions, drawing from the most recent scientific literature on climate change impacts, related health effects and evidence-based interventions. Oregon-specific studies are cited when available. The Climate and Health Policy Paper was shared with State lawmakers on the Oregon Joint Legislative Committee on Carbon Reduction in December 2018.
