Discussion paper: Federal Government planning to prevent and manage the health consequences of climate change

To address the health impacts of climate change – the greatest global health threat of the 21st century – national leadership and governance are needed.

Mitigation of climate change is currently accepted at the federal level as the responsibility of the Department of the Environment and Energy. At present, the Minister for Health and the Department of Health have little input or authority to address the risks and management of current and future health impacts arising from climate change.

This discussion paper details the need for federal leadership and responsibility for a framework to guide adaptation to climate change, with a particular focus on present and future threats to human health.
