WHO health and climate change survey report: tracking global progress
This report presents global findings from the 2017/2018 WHO Health and Climate Change Survey completed by national health services. Regular updates on key health and climate change indicators empower policy makers to make more informed choices to: assess the implementation of policies and plans, identify gaps in evidence, and better understand the barriers to achieving health adaptation and mitigation priorities.
This report provides a vital snapshot of the overall progress that governments have made in the field of health and climate change to date, as well as insight into what work remains in order to protect their populations from the most devastating health impacts of climate change.
The WHO UNFCCC Health and Climate Change Country Profiles, developed in collaboration with national health services, are data-driven snapshots of the climate hazards and expected health impacts of climate change facing countries. They highlight opportunities for health co-benefits from climate mitigation actions and track current policy responses at national
level. The aim of the profiles is to raise awareness of health and climate linkages and to promote actions that improve health and strengthen the climate-resilience of health systems while reducing carbon emissions.
