As COP puts the focus on health and climate, One Health approaches must be part of the mix

On the eve of COP28 in Dubai, Vets for Climate Action supports that the considerable impact of climate change on health (whether of humans, livestock or the environment) should become a priority area.


As the only veterinary organisation in the world to sign a letter from the global health community calling for commitments to phase out coal, oil and gas at the international climate meeting this year, we recognise that animal, human and environmental health are inextricably linked.

We also call for Australia's proposed Centre for Disease Control to include a One Health component.
