The Climate and Health Summit will convene in parallel with the 19th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 19) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The Summit aims to coordinate action across all sectors to protect human health from the impacts of climate change, and will develop a roadmap for the international health community to work towards in the run up to the 2015 climate conference in Paris. The Summit is organized by the Global Climate and Health Alliance in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO). The Alliance, which consists of health organizations from around the world, was formed in Durban, South Africa, in 2011, during UNFCCC COP 17, to tackle climate change and to protect and promote public health.
