Blueprint for Addressing Climate Change and Health
The intent of this document is to raise awareness of the importance of health in climate mitigation and adaptation planning; to articulate health impacts in climate change communication; and to describe key actions for our agency to move this work forward, acknowledging we are challenged to find the resources to fund much of the necessary work.

The Assessment, Policy Development and Evaluation Unit's primary work is assessment and evaluation of population-based data and interventions, integrating qualitative analysis, and policy development. We are a multidisciplinary group of epidemiologists, social research scientists, and policy specialists. We collaborate with community and other Public Health — Seattle & King County divisions, using and developing state-of-the-art techniques for data collection and analysis. Our goal is to provide leadership and technical assistance for population-level health assessment, data-driven program planning, program evaluation, and policy.
