Director of the Pan American Health Organization, Dr. Carissa Etienne says more work is needed to mitigate the effects of climate change in the region.

This is necessary she says, as hurricanes have caused millions of dollars in losses this year.

The PAHO director believes greater efforts should be made to ensure utilities and communications are not severely disrupted by the passage of weather systems.
