Our Events

The COVID-19 crisis has shown how a large shock can rapidly pull millions of people back into poverty and health insecurity. There are increasing discussions on what COVID-19 and the responses it entailed from the health systems could mean for adaptation to climate change effects on health. This session will address the need to understand the complex interlinkages between these twin planetary challenges and how the global community could move beyond sector-specific crisis reactions.
