Climate Change and Health - DOW's Annual Conference


Doctors of the World UK (Medecins du Monde UK) Annual Conference

 Climate Change and Health: understanding the impact before it’s too late.

 Friday 19th March 2010 - 10am-4pm

Join us to hear lead experts in the field, including Jonathon Porritt, Andrew Haines and Jean Lambert MEP, set out the consequences; from changing migration patterns and new conflicts to the impact on public health. Afternoon workshops will give you the chance to share your own ideas on how best to address the issues raised.

It promises to be an interesting, inspiring and interactive event.

WORKSHOPS

How can we influence policy that impacts Health and Climate Change, right here in Europe?
The aim of the workshop is to explore the best ways of influencing policy by asking what we should focus on, what kinds of partnerships and coalitions are needed, and what lessons we can learn from what has been done so far.

Understanding the link between Climate Change and Health in the developing world.
The aim of the workshop is to understand the dramatic implications of climate change on health in many developing countries and to identify the impact and importance of investment in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). This workshop welcomes active participation from both NGO and non-NGO delegates to build a case supporting investment in healthrelated DRR in a developing country.
