Health and Climate Change: Integration, economy and sustainable development in Latin America


Latin America is a region that hosts its natural capital as a whole. The region is home to around 60 % of the planet's terrestrial species; as well as a complex and abundant flora and fauna. The wealth of its natural capital ranges from coastlines and wetlands to deserts, tropical forests, vast savannah grasslands and high-altitude habitats. However, without correct and integrated public policy management, the significant impacts on biodiversity that currently occur in large concentrations of the region's population could continue, bringing with them possible implications for human health.
