EHA : Yearkbook 2009
EHA YEARBOOK 2009 Climate Change Special Interest Group The Climate Change SIG is a relatively new special interest group that had been inactive and was reformed in 2009 with Kaye Arnold as Convenor and Kim Pearson as Secretary. During the first meeting of the Climate Change SIG it was decided that the group needed terms of reference for guidance. The terms of reference decided upon are as follows: n To promote the health and wellbeing of the community through the identification and mitigation of the health effects of climate change. n Provide professional environmental health information and tools for Environmental Health Officers to manage and educate Council and the community on climate change health related strategies. n Identify emerging issues. n Establish partnerships with other stakeholders. n Wo rk with other Environmental Health SIGs, where there are common links and share information. At the initial meeting of the Climate Change SIG members took part in a brainstorming session in which the group looked at the links between climate change and Environmental Health. At the subsequent meetings issues discussed included: n Whether Climate Change fact sheets should be included on SA Health website n Whether Climate Change information should be included on knowledge base website. n Follow up with interstate Climate Change SIGs to see what sort of things they are doing. n Long term vision of developing a Climate Change Manual. Given the relatively short time the SIG has been operational it is expected that other issues will arise in the future.
