Climate change and health – Training resources for capacity building: Review of the first Draft



To respond to and anticipate Member States’ needs for capacity building in the area of climate change and health, the WHO Regional Office for Europe has developed a draft training toolkit for environment and health professionals.

 The meeting in Bonn was held in order to:

  • review and revise the draft training toolkit (concept, structure, training approach, facilitators’ manual and example training materials);
  • contribute to amending the training material; and
  • exchange information and experiences of participants.

The meeting was attended by experts in climate change and human health with training experience in this field. The results of this meeting will be an essential element in the concept development phase of the training toolkit. The meeting was cosponsored by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.
