The purpose of this webinar is to examine links between climate change, water security and mental health, particularly in island nations. While the emotional effects of stress and anxiety around a warming climate are well known, specific evidence is lacking on the connection between climate events and impacts on mental health as a result of changes to water security. Four panellists have expertise in social equity and water insecurity (Pablo Gaitan Rossi), climate resilience (Simon Thuo), and linkages between climate and human health (Sandeep Maharaj and Natalie Greaves).

In this webinar it will be discussed the urgent need to measure both acute and long-term psychological impacts, while also focusing on solutions to help communities build resilience. Gain valuable insights into developing resilient strategies and understanding the cognitive processes that influence decision-making in the face of climate crises.
