Adaptation to Climate Change in the Health Sector

German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)

The global programme “Adaptation to Climate Change in the Health Sector” is implemented by the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). It supports the development of innovative climate change adaptation measures for the health sector and promotes national and international discourse on health related issues of climate change.
In Cambodia, Burundi, Malawi and the Philippines pilot projects together with partners are implemented with concrete adaptation measures at national and local level. The generated experiences and lessons learnt furnish the programme’s technical input at the national and international policy level.
