Lessons from COVID-19 for Sustainability: Health and Climate Change

The COVID-19 crisis has an environmental dimension, regarding future sustainable recovery, and disaster relief from climate change which will be achieved exclusively through environmentally sound policies at all levels of governance, from local to transnational to global. This session aims to merge the environmental perspective of climate law and the health perspective, paying particular attention to the role played (and yet to be played) by the World Health Organization and lessons for sustainability from COVID-19.
