The Health Equity Alliance has released a joint climate statement in recognition of the 2021 COP 26 UN Climate Change Conference.

The statement highlights the direct and indirect impacts that climate change will have on health outcomes in NSW, and calls on the NSW Government to take seven steps towards climate action. These include introducing a NSW Climate Change Act, embedding climate change impact assessment, mitigation and adaption into budgetary processes, and resourcing the health and community services sector to develop and implement climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies.

The Health Equity Alliance, convened by NCOSS, brings together non-government organisations, peak organisations, representatives from academia and other interested parties to develop and advance the policy responses needed to improve health outcomes for people experiencing poverty and disadvantage in NSW.
