This year’s United Nations Climate Conference, COP 26, will – for the first time – center the impact of climate change on human health. From the very urgent severe weather crisis that has seen an uptick in storms and wildfires to the more long-term effects of climate impacts on our food systems, there is a lot to discuss.
