CMMB Co-Hosts Panel on Sustainability, Health and Nutrition in the Face of Climate Change

More than 100 high-level regional and global leaders across domains discussed the impact of climate change on food and nutrition security and health at a forum co-sponsored by FADICA member Catholic Medical Mission Board (CMMB). CMMB Senior Vice President, Adrian V. Kerrigan, noted that climate change is undermining current efforts to reduce undernutrition, one of the world’s most serious but under-addressed socioeconomic and health problems. Policy solutions for national adaptation plans and international cooperation, including empowering women and children, were discussed as part of the post-2015 sustainable development agenda. In concluding remarks, CMMB CEO Bruce Wilkinson said that “at the center of our considerations and interventions ultimately should not be economics, certainly not politics, but rather humanity and its wellbeing and protection; for the sake of current and future generations to come.”
