# CRP005 A New Challenge in Global Environmental Governance: Adaptation to the Effects of Climate Change on Health and Sustainable Development

Introduction: Interactions of Climate Change, Health and Human Development A sizeable proportion of the many severe health problems faced by people living in developing countries can be traced to climate change-induced conditions. There is sufficient evidence of a link between climate change and health through the impacts of droughts, floods, coastal storms, etc. on human well-being and security (WHO, 1997; WHO, 2008; Oxfam, 2008; UNAIDS and UNEP, 2008).

Despite strong indications that the adverse effects of climate change can exacerbate present health challenges in developing countries, existing global governance systems have failed to adequately address contemporary global health issues as they interact with changes in climate.

# CRP008 The Impact of the Global Financial Crisis on West African States

The current debate on regional integration and development prospects has sharply focused on the ongoing global financial crisis and its possible consequences on Africa.  One of the prevailing arguments is that the region faces too many developmental challenges to support the adverse impact of the financial crisis.
