The impacts of climate change on global health are unfolding at a distressing pace. Compromised food systems, widespread water shortages, and pollution are mounting pressure on primary healthcare infrastructure and deteriorating health outcomes globally. Furthermore, developing countries, despite having a minimal contribution to the global carbon footprint, are bearing the most severe consequences of these interconnected challenges.

Against the backdrop of the 78th United Nations General Assembly, join Foreign Policy, in partnership with Foundation S and the Africa-Europe Foundation (AEF), to explore the nexus of climate change and global health. With COP28 on the horizon, this event aims to advance the conversation on financing climate adaptation solutions to address health inequities.

The event will also launch an Action Report produced by the Collective MindS Climate Council, the think-tank of Foundation S. The report highlights the connection between climate change and health, and the importance of supporting locally led adaptation solutions strengthen health resilience in the face of climate change.
