Climate Change Agreement Critical to Public Health. Country Climate-Health Profiles to Help Action



Palabras clave:

Climate Change , Public Health, Country

An effective new universal climate change agreement must also be very much an effective public health agreement, and health ministers and practitioners need to speak up to make that clear as countries shape the final outcome, which will be concluded in Paris, in December. This was the central message of a panel convened on the margins of the UN climate change negotiations in Bonn, on Tuesday. The panel delivered its message and gave an update on work by the World Health Organization (WHO) in cooperation with the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to create country-specific profiles for health and climate change, outlining the health risks associated with climate change and potential opportunities from action to address climate change. Health ministers and the health sector need to “step up” to ensure health issues are taken properly into account in the climate change negotiations, said Diarmid Campbell-Lendrum, who leads the WHO Climate Change and Health Team. “It’s the role of WHO and others to provide information to help countries to do that.”
