Ebola and climate impacts in Africa: Is there a link?

By the Climate Centre

For the first time in its history, the United Nations has created an international mission for a public-health emergency.

The UN Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER) “will bring together the vast resources of UN agencies, funds and programmes, to reinforce WHO’s technical expertise and experience,” according to a press release on Friday from the World Health Organization in Geneva; its hub will be in Accra, the Ghanaian capital.
