​​A GST that Counts for People: Integrating Health into the Global Stocktake​

​Urban forestry in the City of New York​

This event will focus on links between health and climate change, including health losses and damages and co-benefits of mitigation and adaptation; showcase examples of policies across sectors that benefit people and the planet; and explore tools and recommendations for integrating health into the Global Stocktake (GST).   

This side event, hosted by the World Health Organization, Global Climate and Health Alliance, Wellcome Trust and London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, is part of the Bonn Climate Change Conference taking place from 5-15 June. The session will explore the links between health and delivery of the Paris Agreement, spanning mitigation, adaptation, loss and damage, and means of implementation. Speakers will identify recommendations for the inclusion of health in the outputs of the Global Stocktake, including the integration of health in Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and long-term strategies. There will also be an update on the wider integration of health at COP28 and discussion of common objectives across the climate and health communities.
