Climate Change: Stop Burning Fossil Fuels. Adaptation Measures: Quarantine, surveillance, e ducation (bed nets, repellents) Vector Control (Drugs, pesticides, vaccines) Urbanization: Increase sanitation, housing, proper waste disposal & public Health infrastructure. Improve standard of living to allow implementation of adaptation measures. Land Use: Design Water Storage Facilities to avoid shallow water. Use Drip Irrigation. Control Deforestation. Trade and Travel : Diminish incidence of disease in developing countries. Strengthen sanitary measures on shipping & aircrafts. . ‘ UNHCR/ Hoibak Source:MINUSTAH Strategies to Solve The Problem Source:
