As a basis for further analysis – Who is the target audience? Internal staff Assessment Step 2: Determine Health Burden Attributed to Climate Change Factors Proposed to be Mitigated by Recommendations • Reason for selecting CRA: – Comparative Risk Assessment (CRA) methodology applied to facilitate decision-making when various activities compete for limited resources. – Research tool and has helped to characterize sea level rise and heat wave profiles and priorities for policy implementation on the – Bases for further analysis to inform HIA Assessment Step 3: Determine QALYs of Climate Change Impacts Proposed to be Mitigated by Recommendations • Methodology established. Step 3 will likely begin before the end of January, pending completion of CRA. Next Steps • Project Timeline – Materials will be sent to SC on Feb. 11, for review – Next meeting Feb. 18, 10:30AM-11:30AM – Final Meeting March 18, 10:30-11:30AM Adjourn Thank you!
