COP 28 (4) Climate change and NCDs (2)

20 November, 2023

Hi Richard,

Many thanks for your kind offer - all those are valuable considerations - lucky students.

Unfortunately, our proposed activities are all discussion panels. So I was hopeful to find someone from Global South to join our panel for a discussion of issues concerning policy and research on maternal and child health and climate adaptation.

So far I have not identified anyone so the search continues,

Kind regards,
