The Health and Environment Alliance welcomes the compromises reached throughout the discussions. The agreed legislative changes have the potential to make CLP a more protective and efficient piece of legislation.
On the occasion of the 4th Forum of Mayors on Just Transition which will focus on the Social Policy Dialogue on the Transition to Net Zero, HEAL has written an open letter to mayors involved in Just Transition and Recovery deliberations introducing a new tool to assess health protection in just transition plans.
HEAL believes that the health perspective has to be at the center of all Just Transition deliberations and decisions, in order to shift the economy and our ways of life towards a climate-neutral and health promoting future, while leaving no one behind. Just Transition financing must provide targeted support to the most affected regions to alleviate the socio-economic impact of the transition and bring significant health benefits to the local population.
