The objective of the 18th edition is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for discussions on our current state of knowledge of Mediterranean risks in a climate change context. Different aspects related to monitoring, assessment, diagnosis, prediction, and definition of weather extremes, wildfires, hydro-geological effects, impacts on natural resources, agriculture, health and society, as well as adaptation capacity and preservation strategies for natural and cultural heritage at risk, will be addressed with a multi-sectorial approach. This will be achieved by bringing together scientific experts in the fields of meteorology, hydrology, wildfires, geomorphology, sociology, engineering, cultural heritage conservation, and governmental or private risk management actors.

Webinar: Supporting a strategic approach to urban health

Online

World Health Organization (WHO)

Jun 18, 2024

WHO has recently released a new series of policy briefs to support strategic reflection among urban health decision-makers. Each brief focuses on a cross-cutting  theme: generating and working with evidence; governance and financing; innovation; and partnerships and participation. Collectively, these represent the essential “means of implementation” that set the stage for a strategic approach to urban health. This webinar will present the new series. Discussants from a range of domains will reflect on the value of strategic approaches to urban health and prospects for amplifying and scaling best practices. The event will also feature a call for case studies that illustrate strategic action for urban health at city or national level.
