Climate Change effects on the epidemiology of infectious diseases and the impacts on Northern societies (CLINF). CLINF is an interdisciplinary project with partners across the Arctic.
This will improve our understanding of the impacts of climate change on the geographical distribution and epidemiology of climate sensitive infections and the consequences for Arctic health, economies and societies in the north.
The aim is to understand the linkages between the spreading CSIs and the consequencesfor health and well-being, culture, and economy in animal husbandry communities.
The project will focus on current adaptation responses, future adaptation needs and adaptive capacity of husbandry activities within sheep farming and reindeer herding.
