Estimated deaths attributable to climate change, 2000

Year: 2010 Author: Nieves López Izquierdo, Associate Consultant UNEP/GRID-Arendal
The extent to which mortality is attributable to climate change remains a matter of intense debate. Data from the World Health Organization (WHO) for 2000 indicate that, in Latin America and the Caribbean, there were between 2 and 40 deaths per million inhabitants from floods, malaria and diarrhoea. In terms of regions, the most severe health effects have been in Africa, though significant effects are also being felt in Latin America and in certain parts of Asia. This difficult situation has a major economic impact on the health systems of the countries of these regions.
