OraTaiao: The NZ Climate and Health Council works to highlight in NZ and globally:
- The negative impacts of climate change on health.
- The health and equity gains from health-centred climate action.
- The impacts of climate change on those that already experience disadvantage or ill-health (equity impacts).
- Health sector carbon reduction and sustainability.
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.
