Intrinsik’s scientific experts are well-versed in the field of Climate Change and Health Vulnerability and Adaptation Assessments (CCHVAA). CCHVAAs are a valuable tool in trying to understand the potential health impacts in a region that are related directly and indirectly to a changing climate and identifying the vulnerabilities and resiliencies that exist in the region. The adaptation assessment part of CCHVAAs is aimed at strengthening the existing resilience and arming regions and communities with custom-made strategies to combat the potential health impacts due to climate change. Intrinsik’s scientific experts and advisors work with climate change scientists to help you understand how a changing climate can potentially impact the health of people in your region or community and what some potential adaptation strategies might be.
