Health workers lead calls for a healthy recovery

healthyrecovery

During the lockdown, voices from many countries and sectors have been speaking up for a better world after COVID-19.

Today, 200 health professionals’ organisations—representing over 40 million doctors, nurses and other health professionals from 90 countries—called for a “healthy recovery” in an open letter to the political leaders of G20 countries.

Health professionals from all over the world want their voices to be heard in the economic recovery packages now under consideration. They want to ensure that the proposed incentives and disincentives do not thrust us back into a world that continues to undermine human health, and which puts them, their patients and their communities at unnecessary risk.

Increasing levels of pollution in our air and water have been increasing our vulnerability to disease for decades, just as deforestation and climate change have been increasing a broad number of health risks to humans. And, as COVID-19 has shown, when human health is compromised, the economy suffers.

A healthy recovery is one that recognises that human, economic and planetary health go hand in hand.  It is a green recovery, which recognises that good health and thriving economies depend upon the health of the planet. As a first step, recovery plans must focus on boosting low-carbon industries.

Leading medical and scientific experts can help guide the economic recovery packages to ensure that public health is at the core of every decision made. Today’s letter is just the beginning.

Our partner MISSION 2020 is working closely with the World Health Organization, the Global Climate and Health Alliance and the Global Summit on Climate Change, to elevate the voices of health professionals for a #HealthyRecovery.

  • 🚍🌱🚖 Transforming road transport for #PeopleAndPlanet.

Decarbonising transportation is essential to decarbonising society. There are an estimated 1 billion polluting vehicles on the world’s roads, accounting for approximately 15% of annual greenhouse gas emissions. Making the shift to electric vehicles is necessary and urgent.

That’s why the IKEA Foundation recently announced a $100 million investment in Drive Electric Campaign’s new Leapfrogging Partnership: a philanthropic effort to supercharge the transition to zero-emission vehicles in emerging markets across Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia.

Nearly 40% of the world’s transportation demand is committed to electric vehicles by 2050, driven by smart government policies and business commitments supported by Drive Electric Campaign’s network of partners.

But clean transport and its benefits – from workers saving money on fuel to children breathing cleaner air – are not yet equally distributed. The goal of the Leapfrogging Partnership is to accelerate access to clean, affordable electric vehicles all over the world.

At the World Circular Economic Forum our Programme Manager, Annelies Withofs, talked about the Circular Food Systems for Rwanda programme which supports farmers, entrepreneurs, and businesses to shift towards #RegenerativeAgriculture and circular systems.
