Preparedness at the interface of health and climate change


Webinar series: Health in climate emergencies #1

14:00-15:00 CET

Climate change is causing more frequent and intense, extreme weather events, as well as slow-onset events such as increasing temperatures. The resulting emergencies are a major threat to health, increase illnesses and deaths, disrupt food systems, cause displacements and widening inequalities. To support parliamentarians in reflecting on the health-climate change nexus the IPU is organizing a webinar series looking at health in climate emergencies through different phases of emergency management. This is the first of three webinars in the series. It will present the main linkages between health and climate change, and discuss how to strengthen emergency preparedness taking into account both health and climate factors.

The webinar is open to all interested parliamentarians and parliamentary staff. It will take place on the Zoom platform. There will be simultaneous interpretation between English, French and Spanish.
