Panel 4: Safeguarding and Supporting Human and environmental health in the context of climate change

Focusing on the overarching theme of the conference, this panel discusses the linkages between human and environmental health and highlights the role CSOs must play in ensuring that governments and authorities at national, regional, and continental levels are held to account in ensuring not only that the right health and environmental policies are in place, but that they are also implemented effectively to safeguard and support the health of all Africans, as well as the communities that they live in.
