Climate Change & Sustainability

Climate change is the biggest global health threat of the 21st century and the evidence is clear that it will have a negative impact on health and wellbeing in our lifetime as well as future generations. The activities that contribute to and drive climate change are the same things that drive poor health outcomes more broadly.

The ADPH network will champion sustainability as a core public health principle across the region. ADPH Y&H will work with partners to address climate change, improve the health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities.
