Climate change has numerous implications for public health. These are uniformly likely to affect vulnerable residents most severely, and include poor air quality, more frequent and severe extreme weather events and potential for water and food scarcity.
This report is part of the JSNA (Joint Strategic Needs Assessment) which looks at the current and future health and care needs of the local population. The JSNA explores the wider social factors that impact a person’s health and wellbeing, to inform the commissioning of health services within the borough.
A list of all JSNA reports can be found on the Brent Joint Strategic Needs Assessment 2019/20 open data page.
