Climate change has and will continue to produce an increasing burden on vulnerable populations including children, the elderly, low-income communities of color, and tribes.  Beyond increased burdens on health, climate change impacts will continue to result in the need for a strong, coordinated, and intentional disaster response and ultimate recovery for communities affected by climate-related disasters.  Dr. Mildred McClain and Dr. Yomi Noibi have both committed themselves to increasing awareness of issues around climate change that affect vulnerable populations and communities of color.
