change. It focuses on the health impacts related to water, sanitation
and hygiene. A summary of the findings resulting from a review of the
literature is provided. This is followed by details of the reports and
academic papers. Reports from an international perspective are listed
first, followed by reports referring to specific countries. Where an
abstract or summary has been provided by the reports’ authors, this is
given. For reports describing climate change impacts generally, a
summary of the impacts relating to water and sanitation has been given
This report was produced by DEW Point, a Resource Centre for
Environment, Water and Sanitation, that was funded by DFID and managed
by a consortium of companies led by Harewelle International Limited. The
Resource Centre closed in 2012.
