Climate and Health Impact Assessment
boat under bridge

Our Climate and Health Program is closely linked with Oregon’s Health Impact Assessment (HIA) program.

One of​ our current projects is evaluating Metro Regional Government’s Climate Smart Communities Scenarios and describing the health impacts of proposed carbon-reduction strategies. The assessment will be presented to the Metro Council and help to ensure health-promoting climate policy.​ ​

In partnership with Upstream Public Health, the HIA team also co-developed a Climate Change Policy HIA Toolkit to assist public health professionals in conducting HIAs on local climate change policies.
