Diarrhea is globally the third-largest cause of death for children under 5, contributing to more than 500,000 deaths. Only pneumonia kills more children each year. Climate change, driving increased flooding and droughts, threatens the fragile progress made in reducing the burden of diarrheal disease over the past decades.
The SPRINGS project aims to inform key climate, environmental, and health adaptation policies to better measure the impact of future climate shocks on the burden of water-borne diarrheal diseases, in order to support and prepare citizens, communities, and governments.
