Physical Health

KayakAs anthropogenic drivers lead to ecosystem transformations, the physical health of those who live in these ecosystems is affected. For example, acute physical injuries and reproductive health challenges are often exacerbated by natural disasters and civil strife and displacement, while physical fitness levels including body composition and cardiovascular health are affected by changes in food systems and nutrition intake as well as by urbanization.
