- Addressing climate-related health issues, illnesses and injuries should become a major priority for the National Prevention Council. All 17 participating Federal agencies should work together to develop strategies and policies to improve the health and well-being of Americans, and should develop a government-wide action plan that addresses the health-related consequences of climate change.
- Every state should have a comprehensive climate change adaption plan that includes a public health assessment and response. State and local health agencies should engage in public education campaigns and establish relationships with vulnerable populations as part of any plan. Only 15 states currently have completed comprehensive adaptation plans, according to a review by the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) environmental health and preparedness programs should prioritize supporting and ensuring states and localities understand the impact of climate change and apply this to long-range health planning. This program receives minimal resources and has experienced cuts recently.
- Incorporating climate-related risks and mitigation into relevant public health and emergency preparedness grant guidance from Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), CDC, and other related agencies.
