COP28 Health Pavilion: Harnessing the health co-benefits of climate action
This event, co-hosted by partners from academia, policy and practice, will facilitate discussion on the health co-benefits of climate action, to inform and inspire ambitious commitments and action at COP28 and beyond.
The session will include a presentation of key findings and recommendations from the recently published Lancet Pathfinder Commission report and announce the launch of a new Coalition on Climate Action for Health.
Speakers will provide an overview of evidence on climate mitigation actions with the largest potential co-benefits across sectors and highlight the main pathways to health, as well as presenting case studies of implemented solutions with measured climate and health benefits.
The presentations will cover a range of topics relating to climate mitigation and health, including actions across different sectors; priorities, challenges and opportunities for diverse regions, countries and cities; and the integration of health co-benefits into climate policies and UNFCCC processes.
