ATACH Global Meeting: Transforming health systems in the face of climate change

ATACH Global Meeting: Transforming health systems in the face of climate change

Building on the health outcomes of COP26, COP27 and COP28, particularly the Health Day, COP28 UAE Declaration on Climate and Health, the Global Goal on Adaptation, the Sharm-El-Sheikh Adaptation Agenda, and the Guiding Principles on Financing Climate and Health Solutions, members of the Alliance for Transformative Action on Climate and Health (ATACH) will convene to agree on how these outcomes should shape the priorities of the ATACH moving forward responding to country demands and promoting a better understanding of the barriers and opportunities to progress this important agenda. Members will also share experiences and expertise for building climate-resilient and low-carbon health systems.   

This will be the first face to face meeting of ATACH, designed to facilitate discussions and networking among partners. Attendance is expected from representatives from ATACH member countries, technical partners, WHO regional and country offices, and invited experts in climate change and health. The meeting will comprise plenary sessions, presentations, workshops, and parallel technical discussions. These sessions will be based on needs and priorities communicated by countries during ATACH Working Group meetings in 2023 and discussions between the Secretariat with Member States and with the ATACH conveners and working group co-chairs.
