GENEVA cheap nike air max 90 mens , March 3 (Xinhua) -- Each year more than seven million deaths worldwide could be attributed to air pollution, and climate change caused tens of thousands of deaths annually from other causes, Margaret Chan, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), warned Thursday.
Speaking during the UN Human Rights Council's panel discussion on the relationship between climate change and heath cheap nike air max 90 le , Chan said that by 2050, experts predicted that climate change would cause an additional 250,000 deaths each year, just from malaria, diarrhea cheap nike air max 90 br , heat stress, and under-nutrition.
"Droughts, floods, wildfires and heat waves claimed human lives. The world could not afford not to take open action. Holding countries accountable for their climate policies was also a matter of fairness," she noted cheap nike air max 90 JCRD , adding that for public health, climate change had become the defining issue for the 21st century.
Since the impact of climate change was universal, unpredictable, and sometimes contested, she said cheap nike air max 90 sneakerboot , human beings were unquestionably the most important species threatened by climate change.
The World Meteorological Organization figure has showed that the year 2015 was the hottest year since records began in 1880, and this year was predicted to be even hotter.
"Droughts threatened already perilous food supplies, especially in poor countries where subsistence farming was rain-fed," Chan stressed.
According to the UN official, the scale of this threat was immense. In some countries more than 70 percent of the population depended on subsistence farming for livelihood. Outbreaks of cholera thrived under too much or too little water. Insects and other carriers of disease were very sensitive to heat cheap nike air max 90 kpu , humidity and rainfall. Climate change had given dengue a vastly expanded geographical range and could do the same for malaria.
"More than half of the world population lived in an area where Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, the principal vector for Zika, dengue, and chikungunya, were present. The warming temperatures threatened to expand this geographical range even further cheap nike air max 90 glow ," Chan warned.
All these consequences for health made the first global climate change agreement reached in Paris last year not just an environment but a health treaty as well, and human rights obligations, standards and principles had the power to shape policies for climate change mitigation and adaptation, she said.
According to her, one of the biggest barriers that stood in the way of realizing the right to health was poverty.
"The poorest households in the world were forced to rely on the most polluting energy sources just for everyday cooking. Use of these energy sources cheap nike air max 90 mid no sew , which caused heavy indoor air pollution, was associated with more than 3.5 million deaths each year," she said.
She added that half of all health facilities in some African countries did not have reliable access to electricity and clean running water, and this was a hazard that came under the spotlight during the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
"The Paris agreement, with its central reference to human rights cheap nike air max 90 american flag , was a welcome step forward. However, the agreement was largely voluntary and subject to interpretation. What was needed now was an agenda for action that doubled as a results-based framework for accountability," she concluded.

Juba， April 20 (Xinhua) -- South Sudan President Salva Kiir is set to hold talks with Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn over the massacre of 208 villagers and kidnapping of 102 children in a cross-border raid last week by gunmen from Juba.
Acting Foreign Affairs Minister Bashir Gbandi said president Kiir has taken the initiative that he will be talking to his Desalegn to pay his condolence and assure of increased security along the common border.
""Also our Chief of Staff has been directed and has been in contact with the Chief of Staff of Ethiopia， we are working hard to diffuse this situation，"" Gbandi told journalists in Juba on Wednesday.
He conceded that the gunmen behind the killings were from South Sudan and took advantage of the country's insecurity situation and the porous border with Ethiopia to carry out the heinous crime.
""Although this attack has been attributed to some elements which went from inside South Sudan but I am happy this has been confirmed by authorities in Ethiopia that the government of South Sudan has no hand in that，"" Gbandi said.
""These were bandits and it is our responsibility as government to fight these bandits. You know in South Sudan we have even cattle rustlers and this is the situation which is happening，"" he said.
Gunmen from the Murle tribe descended on a dozen villages in Ethiopia's remote Gambella province last Friday， snatching children， shooting adults and carrying off more than 2，000 head of cattle.
The Ethiopian， who declared two days of national mourning， has vowed his government will track down the gun men and rescue the abductees.
Security analysts say although cattle rustling and violence between rival tribal groups is common in the remote region， the scale and ferocity of the attack was unprecedented.
Gambela straddles the border of the two nations and is home to more than 280，000 South Sudanese refugees fleeing a civil war that has raged for more than two years.
Gbandi said the authorities in the two countries were cooperating to ensure security at their border area to avert such criminal acts in future.
""We are cooperating and we hope our cooperation through the relevant security organs we will be able to monitor our border jointly so that to minimize such unfortunate incidents from happening again，"" Gbandi said.
