Climate Change and Health: A platform for action
No planet b sign

This paper provides an introduction to the links between climate change and health and aims to inform policy-makers, politicians and the public of the benefits for health from reducing greenhouse gas (GHG)* emissions from food production, transport, energy, and waste. 

The paper highlights the importance of action by the health sector. It presents a platform for action which demonstrates that creating healthy sustainable places and communities can go hand in hand with reducing the negative impacts of climate change. Policy agendas can and should be shared, and there should be a focus on ensuring that efforts to reduce the impact of climate change do not increase health inequalities.
