The world today is an increasingly interconnected
one as a result of global changes which have intensified in recent
decades. Global changes include the movement of populations, goods
and services, capital, and ideas and information in ways that cross
and even transcend geographical borders (known as globalisation);
as well as environmental changes that are global in nature, such as
climate change and desertification.
The Centre on Global Change and Health is a cross-departmental initiative
that brings together staff and students from a wide range of disciplines
to contribute to the School's rapidly growing body of research on
globalisation, environmental change and health.
