Our Work

OraTaiao: The NZ Climate and Health Council works to highlight in Aotearoa New Zealand and globally:

We also do work to inform NZ's contribution to international climate action; highlight the climate and wider health impacts of fossil fuels; the impact of trade agreements on the ability to regulate for climate protection; and the impact of climate change on human rights and the right to health, including for indigenous peoples and children. 

We are part of a worldwide movement of health professionals and health organisations urgently focusing on the health challenges of climate change and the health opportunities of climate action. The Council is a not-for-profit, politically non-partisan incorporated society.
