The deleterious effects of climate change have extended into the area of non-infectious diseases as well. Furthermore, climate change could bring new pests that may invade virgin areas and become problematic for biodiversity and the usefulness of the land for crop production. Based upon how this effect is controlled, higher use of pesticides or herbicides could lead to major food contamination and greater human exposure, which could precipitate the risk of cancers e.
High frequency and intensity of severe temperatures, added to the competition for scant natural resources, on top of prevalent social disparities, are prone to cause anxiety and stress. Even if some of the impacts of climate change are minimal, the general perception and fear of climate change may jeopardize mental health. Also, there may be an increased risk of injury for outdoor workers and people close to areas prone to experience heavy storms. Bushfires and air pollution intensified by extreme weather conditions may exacerbate cardio-respiratory diseases and allergic reactions mostly between asthmatics and the elderly 14, Areas of warming and progressive loss of iced-sea territories might affect traditional living, food production and eating patterns.
These modifications could trigger reduced physical mobility, magnifying the tendency to obesity, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes. Many policies have the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and produce major health co-benefits while confronting climate change. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC , percent of total climate mitigation potential can be provided by halting and reversing tropical deforestation.
Like Peru, Mexico has similar issues regarding climate change. However, the Mexican initiatives have started to reduce deforestation rates. Mexico is switching to natural gas and steadily saving energy, thus reducing annual emissions growth by 5 percent or 10 million tons of carbon per year. Finally, the ideal climate change mitigation action plan in Peru will challenge the central government to collaborate with the media and nonprofit organizations in order to reduce the future impact of climate change, especially in rural populations.
