Public health emergencies of the likes of epidemics and pandemics have been affecting human life for many years now. Many of these health emergencies have forced humans to bring about radical improvements to the then existing health and safety standards and to improve his living conditions and eventually come out stronger to continue business-as-usual. A public-health-emergency-in-waiting, climate change, is however, likely to change the demographics and the future of humans entirely if changes to the existing business-as-usual model are not made. Though humans have the resilience to fight any public health emergency, climate change is one public health emergency that has a slow effect and has the ability to create complex challenges. It is hence necessary that climate change is addressed proactively rather than reactively.
