Antimicrobial Resistance and Climate Change: Implications for Policy and Practice in LMICs

November 5, 2021 • 10:00 – 11:00 am EDT

Some recent evidence indicates that rising global temperatures will accelerate the rate of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), making it imperative that effective AMR policies be enacted in conjunction with climate policies. In the midst of international discussions on climate at COP26, the CSIS Global Food Security Program gathers experts on climate and AMR to discuss how health, climate, and agriculture policies are interconnected and the need for transdisciplinary integration of development practices and policies in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs). Please join the CSIS Global Food Security Program for a discussion on the implications of climate change for AMR and how to develop integrated AMR initiatives in LMICs.

This event is made possible due to the generous support of the Royal Danish Embassy in Washington.
