Climate and health: How can policy address health impacts of climate change and air pollution?

Climate change is having an increasingly negative impact on many aspects of human health. Recent research also shows that there is an interactive effect between heatwaves and air pollution, again with negative health consequences. Taking action on climate change can improve public health, but this requires systems-based studies and multi-sectoral collaboration to develop and implement policies.

This session will highlight co-benefits of action on climate for health and resilience. Global South and North experts will share how adaptation and mitigation policies can benefit society, including vulnerable groups.
