The Towards a Safer World (TASW) initiative was launched after the last ISDR Global Platform in 2011.
The first phase of the initiative was to review the impact of 'whole-of-society' pandemic preparedness efforts since 2005. 11 parameters were used in the analysis and key achievements and lessons were identified.
The World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) launched the Health and Climate Atlas yesterday. The Atlas features a section and case studies devoted to climate-related health emergencies.
