Pandemics in a changing climate - Evolving risk and the global response

Pandemic outbreaks can be economically devastating for the affected countries, overwhelming public finances and reversing hard-won development gains. The immediate economic disruption resulting from loss of life and suspended productivity can translate into lasting impediments to growth. In the current system, response mechanisms are much too slow, particularly in delivering financing to responsible counterparties. In addition, the effects of climate change will increase the inherent risk of pandemic outbreaks by changing environments and disease transmission vectors, heightening uncertainty as to the location, type and severity of the next outbreak.
