Overview

The present guidance aims to ensure that the health sector works with partners in the environment and other related communities, and follow a systematic process to:

  • Engage in the overall NAP process at the national level.
  • Identify national strategic goals for building health resilience to climate change.
  • Develop a national plan with prioritized activities to achieve these goals, within a specific time period and given available resources.

The guidance outlines the process to be followed to ensure these goals are achieved. In addition, further guidance on how to plan for building climate resilient health systems at country level is provided.
