The Australian Government is developing a National Health and Climate Strategy.

The strategy aims to protect the health and wellbeing of Australians from the effects of climate change. To do this, it is important for the Australian Government to:

  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the health system
  • make the health system more resilient to the impacts of climate change
  • support communities to take action against the health effects of climate change.

The strategy will be in line with the Government’s policies to adapt to climate change, and will also consider the work that has already started.

More information about the strategy is available in the Consultation Paper.

WWDA has now submitted their response to this Consultation Paper. Our response outlines our recommendations!
