📅 Tuesday, October 17 – 9:00 – 10:30: Panel discussion „The Road to COP 28: Action towards Climate Change and Health“ at the World Health Summit.
With Dr. Maria Neira (World Health Organization), Dr. med. Eckart von Hirschhausen (Stiftung Gesunde Erde – Gesunde Menschen), Dr. Ahmed Al-Mandhari (World Health Organization), Adnan Amin (UN Climate Change), Khattabi Zakia (Minister of Climate, Environment, Sustainable Development and Green Deal | Belgium), Prof. Dr. Arvind Kumar (Lung Care Foundation).
🌍 Healthy people exist only on a healthy planet.
Therefore, protecting human health and planetary health can be strong arguments for more ambitious climate protection efforts. The consequential health costs of the climate crisis, the costs of inaction, also play an important role here. Whether and how this can lead to more binding negotiation results in the context of COP28 will be the subject of discussion.
