The IAP virtual event on Climate Change and Health took place on 3 March 2021 as a satellite session of the 2021 Conference of the Consortium of Universities for Global Health.
The session was organised by the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP), together with regional networks in Africa (NASAC), Asia (AASSA), the Americas (IANAS) and Europe (EASAC). Speakers from all regions shared their knowledge on similarities and differences between and within regions for climate effects on health. During interactive breakout sessions, attendees were invited to discuss options for adaptation and mitigation, strengthening health systems, and informing science-policy interfaces.
