Climate change, cash transfers and health. Ichiro Kawachi, August 2015, Paper, "The forecast consequences of climate change on human health are profound, especially in low- and middle-income countries and among the most disadvantaged populations. Innovative policy tools are needed to address the adverse health effects of climate change. Cash transfers are established policy tools for protecting population health before, during and after climate-related disasters. Researchers propose extending cash transfer interventions to more proactive measures to improve health in the context of climate change. They identify promising cash transfer schemes that could be used to prevent the adverse health consequences of climatic hazards." Link
