May TRINet Newsletter
Today's front page news in the dailies is about Delhi's temperature breaking the 50 year record for the hottest day in April, five degrees above normal and the heat conditions are likely to persist. There is also the news that the World Health Organization has raised its pandemic alert for swine flu to the second highest level Wednesday, meaning that it believes a global outbreak of the disease is imminent. There is also news that the Commonwealth Health Ministers meeting will convene on 17 May 2009, under the theme of “Health and Climate Change.”All these bits of information indicate that it is rather appropriate that the May newsletter from TRINet focuses on some fundamentals of climate change and health.
The Useful reads section contains a note about "The Tsunami Legacy", a report released last week by the UN Secretary General apart from a review on the economics of CC in Southeast Asia; there is also the 'News you can use" section".
