Given the vulnerability of Pacific Islands to the impacts of climate change, the Government of the Marshall Islands is aiming to develop a concise and comprehensive National Climate Change Health Policy and a 5-year action plan to support the effective delivery of this policy. The goal of the policy and action plan is to improve the preparedness of the health sector and lead the country into a climate-resilient future.
Effective climate change and health policies require inter-sectoral approaches integrating scientific, technological and social dimensions. Thus, the project team will use qualitative and quantitative research methods, and deep and meaningful engagement with key local, regional and international stakeholders, to develop a comprehensive Climate Change and Health Policy and Action Plan for the Republic of Marshall Islands. This engagement will involve Government officials, local health practitioners and researchers, the private sector, community groups, NGOs, church and community leaders, and women and youth associations.
This project is funded by the Pacific Community (SPC).
