Calls for public health expert to be appointed to commission

Posted: 24 Mar 2021

Ora Taiao: NZ Climate and Health Council has written a letter to Climate Change Minister James Shaw requesting an urgent appointment to the commission saying there is increasing evidence of climate change's health impacts internationally, but a better understanding of the risk and effects it has on health in New Zealand is needed.  

Climate Minister James Shaw said OraTaiao is correct in saying climate change could have a significant impact on public health, but there are no plans at this stage to appoint new members to the Climate Change Commission.  See the full article here.
