  • Climate actions often yield significant human health co-benefits that are frequently overlooked, emphasizing the overall gains of transitioning towards a net-zero society.
  • Proposals include forming a coalition of organizations, subnational, and national initiatives to accelerate progress towards net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. This coalition will prioritize monitoring and evaluating effects on health and greenhouse gas emissions while fostering the sharing of experiences and lessons learned.
