HEAL at Durban for United Nations climate negotiations, COP17

What's good for climate is good for health Our message: What’s good for climate is good for health + the economy!

The Health and Environment Alliance has a four-person delegation in Durban at the UNFCC conference, which brings together representatives of the world’s governments, international organizations and civil society. Just as at the UN climate talks in Barcelona, Copenhagen, and Cancun, our delegation is again pushing for a strong, binding climate change treaty to help protect our health.
