Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition Statement on Climate Change and Health at WHA77

Geneva, 3 June 2024 - 

The two-way relationship between food systems and climate creates opportunities for action contributing to climate mitigation, adaptation, resilience, and human health co-benefits, alongside a range of positive socioeconomic outcomes, making food systems transformation for nutrition and climate a key strategy to accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement. The WHA Resolution on Climate and Health therefore has come at a perfect moment to re-emphasise these critical connections, and GAIN emphatically supports the call for coherent and holistic approaches to these interlinked challenges.
