posted on 2024-02-16, 05:40 authored by Tony WalterTony Walter
In Australia, there is a significant gap particularly evident in the climate and health field in focusing on adaptation at the community level. Additionally, there is a paucity of research connecting climate change adaptation (CCA) to the environmental health profession. The aim of this cross-sectional survey was to understand the current opinions that Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) in Australia have towards CCA. The study ought to answer four questions assisting in understanding this gap: (1) Does CCA in health appeal to the wider EHOs population? (2) Do EHOs believe they have a role to play? (3) What are the main hurdles for the profession to achieve CCA? (4) Do EHOs believe an integrated approach with disaster risk reduction approach is suitable for their practice? The survey described here was the initial data collection phase of a mixed method research study design and will be used to build on the next qualitative phase of our research.
