A climate of suffering : the real costs of living with inaction on climate change : Mental health and community wellbeing in the wake of extreme weather /

by Climate Institute.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Climate Institute 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 27-28Summary: This report addresses a big gap in the current public debate about climate change and how we should respond to it. There has been much legitimate concern about economic consequences and the risks to property, jobs and export earnings, but there has been a failure to discuss the consequences of climate change for human wellbeing and health. This report will help us understand the 'human face' of climate change; that is, what it means for us, for our sense of security and that of our friends, our families and our neighbours. This great and complex human induced disruption to the global environment is not just 'somewhere out there'. Increasingly, climate change will weaken the environmental and social conditions that underpin our physical and psychological health.Availability: (1)

Comparing inequality in the well-being of children in economically advanced countries : a methodology /

by Currie, Candace | UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre | Currie, Dorothy | Menchini, Leonardo.

Edition: Revised ed.Publisher: Florence, Italy UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre 2011Description: PDF. 53 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Revised Version December 2011 IWP-2010-19Summary: Socio-economic research on child well-being and the debate around child indicators has evolved quite rapidly in recent decades. An important contribution to this trend is represented by international comparative research based on multi-dimensional child well-being frameworks: most of this research is based on the comparison of average levels of well-being across countries. This paper tries to respond to the complex challenge of going beyond an approach based on averages and proposes a complementary approach to compare inequality in child well-being in economically advanced countries. In particular, it focuses on the disparities at the bottom-end of the child well-being distribution, by comparing the situation of the 'median' child and the situation of the children at the bottom of the well-being scale for nine indicators of material conditions, education and health.Availability: (1)
