Climate change is impacting the health of millions of people around the world. From slow onset climate changes to weather and climate extremes, climate change is impacting everything we care about. In this presentation, the health findings from the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report on climate change impacts and adaptation will be presented, and then linked to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change COP27 and COP28. As one of the Lead Authors on the IPCC report, Dr. Harper will highlight the connections between the IPCC's international science assessment process to the international climate change negotiations that occur at UN Climate Change COPs.
Speaker: Sherilee Harper, Canada Research Chair in Climate Change & Health, School of Public Health, University of Alberta
