Tackling adverse effects of climate change on health in Africa


Join us for a free online webinar on 14 April 2022, 15:00 - 17:00 (East African Time)!

Climate change adversely affects human health worldwide through multiple direct and indirect pathways. Responding to these effects requires connected strategies for mitigation (reducing greenhouse gas emissions) and adaptation (adjusting to what cannot be avoided).

In this webinar, the Network of African Science Academies (NASAC) will present and discuss its new report ‘Taking action against climate change will benefit health and advance health equity in the Africa’. This report focuses on the ways in
which climate change is affecting human health throughout Africa.

How to tackle some of these effects will be the topic for discussion of a panel of experts from the region, including scientists and policy-makers.

This webinar is part of a series of four webinars in which the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP) and its regional networks in Africa (NASAC), Asia (AASSA) and the Americas (IANAS) will launch their reports on tackling the effects of Climate Change on Health. The reports are the outcome of a three-year collaborative global project.

The webinars in this series are designed to inform researchers, policy-makers and the interested public in the respective regions about effects on climate change on health and to discuss option for tackling these challenges.
