WHO COP24 Special Report: Health & Climate Change

The World Health Organization (WHO) has released a special report at COP24, highlighting why health considerations are critical to the advancement of climate action and outlines key recommendations for policy makers.

“The Paris Agreement is potentially the strongest health agreement of this century,” said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of WHO. “The evidence is clear that climate change is already having a serious impact on human lives and health. It threatens the basic elements we all need for good health - clean air, safe drinking water, nutritious food supply and safe shelter - and will undermine decades of progress in global health. We can’t afford to delay action any further.”

The report provides recommendations for governments on how to maximise the health benefits of tackling climate change and avoid the worst impacts of this global challenge. View the full report here.
