TRANSCRIPT: I’m Michel Jancloes, a medical doctor and a proud member of a foundation which is called the Health and Climate Foundation, which is making all efforts possible to try to make climate and development communities work together. The purpose of the meeting we have just organized was really a dialogue with a few people to identify what the needs are coming from people in the health sector, and different authorities, not just in the health sector, and to understand each other and see from this common understanding what kind of information from climate would be most relevant. What we have discovered, first, it’s very different kinds of interests from people based on the timeframe. Usually we are, in the health sector, more concerned by high risk emergencies, new epidemics and heat waves, other than longer term issues, in spite of the fact that longer term [issues] might be critical and more important. But to work with forecasts and some uncertainty, it’s an area where some modeling for forecasting, for projecting, needs quite a deeper dialogue with people from the health sector.
