What’s needed in terms of research and policy for climate and health in Australia? What advocacy campaigns can help to shift the research and policy agenda in the right direction?
This forum brought together health and medical researchers, health and medical professionals, students, environmental educators and community members to discuss this topic.
Following the Forum, participants issued a Joint Statement expressing their collective concern at the current lack of recognition of the health effects of climate change by governments, businesses and the broader community.
A Briefing Paper on the Health Implications of Energy Policy is now available.
