Mitigation actions

Adaptation actions

Strengthening of Public-Health Systems in Response to Climate-Change Threats
Climate change also implies new challenges for infectious disease control. Many major causes of death are highly sensitive to meteorological conditions such as temperature and rainfall, as is the case with cholera and diarrhea-related diseases. Six million greater Santiago residents are exposed to high levels of air pollution that translate into respiratory diseases and premature deaths. Start year 2011

Establishment of Water Resources Vulnerability Levels in Relation to Basin-Level Climate Scenarios and Definition of Resource-Use Adaptation Options
Drinking water provision activities indicate that hydrological changes will occur in the case of the metro region at the city’s main water source, the Maipo River. As such, water demand projections for the overall population will produce a provision deficit. Start year 2011
