Civil society groups taking climate change action need a shared understanding of their work.


Humanitarian relief operations & advocacy programs are increasingly focused on how environmental forces shape the focus of their work, but lack a coherent policy and operational framework to guide decision-making. We are exploring, defining & building this framework. It will offer an actionable concept of planetary health which articulates the relationship between human activity, environmental health & humanitarian emergencies.
