“When working to influence policies and investments in local communities, it is useful to recognize the intersection between population health, health equity, and sustainability.  Communication surveys indicate that people are more likely to support climate-related policies when they understand that those policies can produce immediate health benefits.  In addition, when investments are being made in local communities to transition away from fossil fuels that are driving climate change, it is essential that consideration be given to how those investments can improve population health and reduce social inequities.”
