MEDIA ALERT | CAHA’s Chelsea Hunnisett available for comment from COP28

CAHA < 1 mins read

Australia’s peak body for climate and health, the Climate and Health Alliance, is currently represented at the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) by our Policy and Advocacy Manager, Chelsea Hunnisett. 

This year will be the first year health has been featured as a key focus of global climate discussions.

The COP28 Presidency has set out a plan of action, focused on matching the highest ambition for negotiated outcomes, with an agenda to implement those ambitions in the real world. The Presidency has called on governments and key climate stakeholders to take action in four key areas:

  • Fast-tracking the energy transition and slashing emissions before 2030

  • Transforming climate finance, by delivering on old promises and setting the framework for a new deal on finance

  • Putting nature, people, lives and livelihoods at the heart of climate action

  • Mobilising for the most inclusive COP ever

Ms Hunnisett is part of a global health delegation to COP28 and will be available to speak with media via Whatsapp or Signal, if required.
