Top 10 hungriest countries contribute just 0.08% of global CO2.
-Climate & Food Vulnerability Index shows 10 most food insecure countries emit less than half a tonne of CO2 per person
-Burundi is the world's most food insecure and smallest per capita emitter
-The average Briton generates as much CO2 as 212 Burundians
-IPCC blockers Russia, USA and Saudi some of the worst offenders
As scientists of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change meet in Geneva this week to publish their Special Report on Climate Change and Land (August 8), a new report by the development charity Christian Aid shows that climate change is having a disproportionate impact on the food systems of the country’s least responsible for causing the climate crisis.
The IPCC is expected to show how climate change will affect global food supply, spiking prices and reducing nutrition. It is also likely to recommend that countries will need to drastically cut emissions if global food security is to be protected.

This toolkit consists of eight modules which have been prepared as stand-alone docu-ments that can be read by themselves, but they have also been prepared to comple-ment one another. It has been designed as a tool for health professionals and stu-dents in the health care and public health sectors who want to engage more directly on the issue of climate change as educators with their patients, peers and communi-ties, and/or as advocates for the policies, programs and practices needed to mitigate climate change and/or prepare for climate change in their workplaces and communities
Die Klimakrise als medizinischer Notfall: Ein einführendes Handout der AG Public Health der bvmd zum Thema Klimawandel und Gesundheit.
The world’s climate is changing. There is scientific consensus that since 1980 global temperatures have increased by almost 1°C. Most people experience climate change through extreme weather events, new and re-emerging infectious disease, and the long term effects of sea level rise, impoverishment and armed conflict. This 30 minute film describes the range of morbidity and mortality of climate change related phenomena in six countries around the world.
The film describes the ways in which climate change will have – is already having – significant effects on human health. These effects are unequally distributed in terms of geographic location, social status, access to power or resources, and benefit from energy.
Planetary health is a nascent concept focused on the interdependence of human, animal, and environmental health. It offers a new way to solve global problems, such as pollution and global food security, by balancing the health of our planet with human advancement.
Panorama is motivated by the audacious and visionary concept of planetary health. It represents a tremendous opportunity to solve the biggest health and environmental problems of today.
