Climate and Health Summit 2014
December 2014, Lima, Peru
The 2014 Climate and Health Summit took place alongside the UN climate summit, (COP20), in Lima this December.
The health impacts of climate change are many and varied, and already influencing the lives of individuals, communities and entire regions across the globe. As the international community works toward a post-2020 agreement on climate action, it is crucial that human health considerations are central to these discussions.
Whilst addressing climate change is one of this century’s defining challenges, it also presents an extraordinary opportunity to build a cleaner, healthier, and more equitable world.
The Summit was an occasion to showcase success stories, and to deliberate on the role of health and how best to mobilise the international health sphere in the run-up to COP21 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the UN General Assembly in 2015.
