ABSTRACT

Strengthening Resilience: Acting on Climate Change and Health   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Climate change has been described as the biggest global health threat of the 21st Century and its potential damage to global health outcomes cannot be underestimated. Whilst climate change is often marked by extreme weather events, rising sea levels and polar bears teetering on melting ice sheets, the impacts on human health if left unaddressed could be devastating. The challenges ahead are immense. As the impacts of climate change become more pronounced, so too does the opportunity for government and business to implement actions that align with the Paris Agreement. The global COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic is also an opportunity for business to press pause, take stock, and develop strategies and systems that build greater resilience to future crises in alignment with a net zero future."
