We are seeing the devastating effects of climate change and environmental degradation around us… more frequent and intense wildfires, storms, floods, droughts and heat waves. While mitigation efforts, such as moving to renewable energy and reducing carbon emissions, are vital to limiting the continued rise of global temperatures, resiliency planning is crucial to ensuring communities can weather the current impacts of climate change. For health care organizations, resiliency planning means looking at operational and community needs, as reflected in the White House/HHS Health Sector Climate Pledge, which asks health care organizations to commit to carbon reduction and resiliency planning goals.
Join CHA for a webinar explaining why climate resiliency needs to be a strategic priority for health care organizations and how to make plans to manage extreme weather risks and promote community resilience.
