Working Groups

Climate Change Working Group

In 2020, IANPHI established a working group on public health and climate change and the Climate Change and Health Committee with the objectives of promoting international collaboration between NPHIs and other stakeholders and highlighting NPHIs' roles in climate change adaptation and mitigation policies. The committee brought together 28 member NPHIs to work on climate and health issues.

In 2021, the committee drafted the IANPHI Climate Roadmap, which highlights and advocates for the key role of NPHIs in climate adaptation and mitigation.

In 2022, the committee created Subgroups to tackle specific areas under climate change and health:

  1. Climate indicators
  2. One Health 
  3. Adaptation
  4. Risk assessment

Climate Change Initiatives

On November 10, 2021, IANPHI launched the IANPHI Roadmap for Action on Health and Climate Change at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland. The roadmap highlights and advocates for the existing and potential key role of national public health institutes (NPHIs) in climate adaptation and mitigation, and how they contribute to climate policies, research and action.
