Climate change

Climate change and economic growth are responsible for increased water stress.This study provides a baseline understanding of the interplay among water, climate change, and socio-economic development in NSTM.
Under global warming, seasonal snow takes faster melting rate than before, which greatly changes the hydrological cycle. This study offer insights into understanding the effect from seasonal snow on vegetation and promote the sustainable utilization of regional vegetation in the Northern Hemisphere.

Obstetrician gynecologists, have a patient population that is more vulnerable to the negative impacts of climate change, and issues surrounding fertility and reproduction have not only immediate implications but also implications for future generations. It is only fitting that obstetrician gynecologists take the lead in advocating for safer and greener practices in the OR, hospital, and healthcare industry.

Children with special healthcare needs (CSHCN) are particularly susceptible to extreme weather events. The aim of this study is to contribute to the limited body of literature related to the climate crisis and CSHCN, and to summarize possible ways to improve the disaster preparedness of families of CSHCN.
Edible macroalgae (i.e., ‘seaweeds’) are a nutritious and sustainable alternative to animal-based proteins. However, consumption of seaweeds in Western countries remains low, and little is known about individual drivers of acceptance. The aim of this study was to further explore the consumer acceptability of seaweed-based food products in the UK. In an online study (N = 476), participants were presented with a general description of edible seaweeds, and descriptions of seaweed-based food products (e.g., ‘seaweed burger’).
This scoping review assesses the state of peer-reviewed literature on the health risks associated with climate change in the 21 Pacific Island states, analyzing quantitative and qualitative studies focusing explicitly on health outcomes, as well as studies focusing on health determinants or potential mediators along the climate-health pathway. 
This scoping review was able to identify 25 tools and methods for assessing health vulnerability and adaptation to climate change, using the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) scoping review guidelines. 
An Article in support of SDGs 3, 13, and 15, examining the effects of environmental degradation and climate variation on re-emergence of malaria transmission.
