biological factors external to a person, and all the related factors impacting
behaviours. It encompasses the assessment and control of those environmental
factors that can potentially affect health. It is targeted towards preventing
disease and creating health-supportive environments. This definition excludes
behaviour not related to environment, as well as behaviour related to the
social and cultural environment, and genetics.

This publication describes how adaptation policies should consider the new risks from extreme weather events, how vulnerabilities can be identified and which management procedures can be applied to ensure sustained protection of health.
