Climate Change and Health

Abstract

There are four key messages from health for climate negotiations. Two positive ones include i health as a motivator for action and policy and ii huge health co-benefits to be included in the cost-benefit trade-offs of climate negotiations. Two warning messages: iii there are health-based absolute limits of adaptations and iv hotter average temperatures will cut work productivity of farmers and other outdoor workers as well as workers in non-air conditioned factories in poor countries. This paper will examine how massive open online courses MOOCs have been used in the run-up to this COP to disseminate these four messages to the audience of high-level policy-makers. This required a departure from the classic MOOC format in several ways: duration, focus on decision-making rationale, policy-relevant messages presented in big brush, leaving -traceable accounts- to evidence in two layers of resources provided: essential and -deep dive-.
