Climate change is not and has never been simply an environmental issue–the impact of our changing planet reaches far beyond weather patterns and into our personal lives, affecting physical and mental health.

A panel including youth leaders, climate experts and medical professionals, emphasized this on Tuesday at the youth forum of the Caribbean Development Bank’s (CDB’s) 52nd Annual Meeting, pointing to myriad ways in which climate change can affect health in communities across the Region.

Their comments came during the first panel discussion of the forum entitled ‘Caribbean Youth for Innovation and Resilience (Youth FIRE)’ which was conceptualized by youth advocates and leaders across the Region. The panelists, speaking on the topic Climate Change and Health, addressed the lived reality for Caribbean youth in particular, in facing accelerated climate change and its attendant impacts on health.
