CCHPG contributes to the BC Climate Leadership Plan
September 24, 2015
On September 14th, the CCPHG contributed commentary to provincial climate leadership planning process. Developed by Dr. Tim Takaro, the CCHPG commentary highlights key climate change issues relating to the health sector, as well as outlining the priorities and opportunities for adaptation and mitigation. These important health-related considerations are overlooked in the current iteration of the Climate Leadership Plan (CLP). As the commentary points out, "Currently our climate change and health policy levers are underdeveloped. The climate leadership plan will need to help direct our resources and infrastructure to both build the evidence base that enables us to measure the multiple benefits of different interventions and to respond to uncertain threats by building overall resiliency."
