Climate change and sustainable public services : ILC-UK/British Society of Gerontology Think Piece /

by Evans, Simon | International Longevity Centre UK.

Publisher: London, U.K. International Longevity Centre UK 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2011 Bibliography : p. 9Summary: This report argues that public sector responses to climate change must address adaptation and mitigation. Increasing environmental, financial and social pressures make this the ideal time to mainstream innovative ways of providing public services. Recent British Government policy for the public sector has included a strong focus on addressing climate change and promoting sustainability in the commissioning and delivery of services. Yet whilst a range of strategies and tools have been developed to address these issues for health services but that the sustainability agenda is far less developed in the social care sector. This think piece promotes a recent research project which highlighted several examples of good practice in developing sustainable systems of social care. These included incorporating sustainable outcomes in commissioning decisions, reducing the travel miles incurred through delivering care, implementing telecare solutions as a core part of care packages and appointing green champions within each serviceAvailability: (1)

Climate change, justice and vulnerability /

by Lindley, Sarah | Joseph Rowntree Foundation | O'Neill, John | Kandeh, Joseph.

Publisher: York, U.K. Joseph Rowntree Foundation 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2011 Bibliography pp. 113-119 Appendices pp. 120-176Summary: Climate change will increase the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events such as floods and heatwaves in the UK. This project is concerned with justice in the distribution of the effects of these events on well-being. The effects of extreme weather events will not be distributed evenly. How badly a person or group will be affected will depend not just on their exposure to the event, but on their vulnerability - that is, how well they are able to cope with and respond to floods and heatwaves. Vulnerability is a matter of how events convert into losses in well-being.Availability: (1)

The international community has focused thus far on the scientific aspects of climate change, with the aim of understanding the processes at play and mitigating the impact of human activity. Yet climate change is equally a humanitarian problem and challenge. As such it is of direct interest also to humanitarian agencies, including the Office of the United NationsHigh Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)." -- Introduction.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
