UNEP and WHO Unite to Fight for Environmental Health

The WHO and UN Environment have united to fight environmental health risks that kill 12.6 million people per year.

The agencies will jointly fight air pollution through co-management of the BreatheLife advocacy campaign, tackle climate change and antimicrobial resistance, and work to improve chemicals management, water quality, and nutrition.

The agreement addresses “critical threats to environmental sustainability and climate – which are the foundations for life on this planet. This new agreement recognizes that sober reality,” said UN Environment head Erik Solheim.
