Premise General Population COVID-19 Health Services Disruption Survey 2020

"The COVID-19 Health Services Disruption Survey 2020 is a series of surveys developed to assess the level of disruption to a range of health services resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent government mandates and changes in behavior to mitigate the spread of the disease. This survey was conducted in 76 countries using the smartphone-based Premise data collection platform. Respondents were individual members of the general population. Data were collected from 52,492 respondents. The survey...

Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (GBD 2017) Reference Life Table

"The Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (GBD 2017), coordinated by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors for 195 countries and territories, and at the subnational level for a subset of countries. This reference life table is used in GBD to calculate years of life lost (YLLs) due to premature mortality. It was constructed based on the lowest observed age-specific mortality rates by location...

Low- and Middle-Income Country Primary Health Care Expenditures 2000-2017

This dataset includes estimates of primary health care (PHC) expenditures, PHC expenditures in ambulatory settings, and PHC expenditures disaggregated by the System of Health Accounts (SHA) health care function category in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) from 2000 through 2017. Three data sources were used to estimate PHC expenditures: recently published health expenditure estimates for each LMIC, which were constructed using 1662 country-reported National Health Accounts (NHAs); proprietary data from IQVIA to estimate expenditure of...

New Lives in Anand

Sanderien Verstappen
In 2002 widespread communal violence tore apart hundreds of towns and villages in rural parts of Gujarat, India. In the aftermath, many Muslims living in Hindu-majority villages sought safety in the small town of Anand, some relocating with the financial assistance of their relatives overseas. Following such dramatic displacement and disorientation, Anand emerged as a site of opportunity and hope. For its residents and transnational visitors, Anand’s Muslim area is not just a site of...

Misreading the Bengal Delta

Camelia Dewan
Perilously close to sea level and vulnerable to floods, erosion, and cyclones, Bangladesh is one of the top recipients of development aid earmarked for climate change adaptation. Yet, to what extent do adaptation projects address local needs and concerns? Combining environmental history and ethnographic fieldwork with development professionals, rural farmers, and landless women, Misreading the Bengal Delta critiques development narratives of Bangladesh as a “climate change victim.” It examines how development actors repackage colonial-era modernizing...

Climate Impacts Research at the University of Washington, 1995-2005

Through innovative scientific research on how the Northwest’s natural resources are affected by predictable climate variations, the Climate Impacts Group (CIG) at UW has provided inestimably valuable services to the region and has guided resource managers toward more informed decisions. The CIG outlines here how it would build on this foundation of basic and applied research, increasing its value to a region uniquely well suited to becoming more “climate-wise”.

Preparing for Climate Change: A Guidebook for Local, Regional, and State Governments is designed to help local, regional, and state governments prepare for climate change by recommending a detailed, easy-to-understand process for climate change preparedness based on familiar resources and tools. The guidebook was co-authored by the Climate Impacts Group, King County (Washington) Executive Ron Sims, and King County ‘s climate team. ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability is a contributing partner and is distributing the guidebook...

Links between Pacific basin climatic variability and natural systems of the Pacific Northwest

Z.M. Gedalof
This thesis is composed of three principal chapters, each describing a distinct line of inquiry: (1) Five paleoproxy reconstructions of Pacific Basin climatic variability are examined in order to identify the extent to which these records provide a coherent signal. A composite chronology of these records is well correlated with the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) index, and provides a better record of PDO variability than any of the constituent chronologies back to 1840. This record...

Markov model studies of the El Nino-Southern Oscillation

S.D. Johnson
Aspects of the El Nino-Southern Oscillation are investigated using statistical models derived from observational data sets of surface and subsurface temperature in the tropical Pacific Ocean. Topics examined include: the existence of a seasonal cycle in the unforced internal dynamics of the sea surface temperature (SST) anomaly field; useful forecasting information contained in the subsurface temperature anomalies not reflected in SST; Geographical patterns of SST anomaly and subsurface temperature anomaly that lead to highest growth...

Impacts of Climate Variability and Change, Pacific Northwest

P.W. Mote, D.J. Canning, D.L. Fluharty, R.C. Francis, J.F. Franklin, A.F. Hamlet, M. Hershman, M. Holmberg, K.N. Ideker, W.S. Keeton, D.P. Lettenmaier, L.R. Leung, N.J. Mantua, E.L. Miles, B. Noble, H. Parandvash, D.W. Peterson, A.K. Snover & S.R. Willard
Climate variations in the past have had a tremendous impact on the course of human history, at times allowing one civilization to flourish and at other times driving another civilization to migration or collapse. Even in this century, droughts and floods have crippled one region after another. Adding to these natural variations in climate, it now appears that humans have embarked on a global-scale modification of Earth’s climate by substantially changing the composition of the...
