HIFA at COP27 (2)

17 November, 2022

Dear Poorva

It was nice seeing you, (for a little while) yesterday at the meeting [*see note below]. Quality information can make a huge difference not only in actual life but also in the perception of people towards the issues. Climate change is a major contributor to health and without people knowing the impact of climate change and the health of the environment they will counite to damage themselves through damaging the environment. I am sorry I will not be at Sharm but I do trust that you are doing an excellent job.

Best regards. Najeeb Al-Shorbaji
