“The protection of public health from an increasingly variable and changing climate is a priority for the global health sector”, said Dr. Carlos Dora, from the World Health Organization (WHO), during the Rio +20 Conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He was one of the presenters of the seminar “Contributing to the greening of economies and poverty alleviation through the implementation of the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS)” held on June 15.
