Framework for Collaborative Action on Health & Climate Change

Prepared by SHIFT Collaborative | March 2019


Climate change has simultaneously been called the greatest threat and the greatest opportunity for public health this century (Lancet Commission, 2015).

This User Guide and Framework is intended to support users (you!) to better understand the connections between health and climate change, and enable collaboration and aligned action to address these challenges effectively across sectors. It is a map of key issues, and a set of resources, to provoke thinking about what matters and to help you outline priorities and steps to move this forward, together. It may be used by people in a range of positions, organizations and professions, to advance planning and action to address these issues.
