Join IAP's Interactive Roundtable on Climate Change and Health Policy on 10 June in Helsinki, Finland

In the frame of the Sustainability Research and Innovation Congress (SRI) 2024, the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP) is hosting an interactive roundtable session during the Sustainability Science Days. Our session, titled "Policy lessons from cross-sectoral global case studies tackling climate change effects on health," aligns perfectly with SRI's ethos of linking knowledge with actionable solutions. Through the presentation of 15 case studies, conducted in collaboration with Save the Children, our session will delve into innovative approaches aimed at addressing the interconnected challenges of climate change and health. By bringing together a diverse group of experts, we aim to facilitate discussions on how these findings can inform policy development, implementation, and monitoring, ultimately contributing to a more sustainable future for all.
