IDF Launches the Diabetes and Climate Change Report For Rio+20

21st June 2012


Diabetes and climate change are two urgent challenges in the 21st century. The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) has produced a policy report that establishes both the interconnections between these global risks and the opportunity to combat them together. Launched for the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), the Diabetes and Climate Change Report puts diabetes, NCDs, and health at the center of sustainable development.

The report was produced in consultation with global experts from the health and environment sectors, including Dr Fiona Adshead, Sir George Alleyne, Associate Professor Ruth Colagiuri, Professor Sir Michael Marmot, Professor Anthony J McMichael and Professor Hugh Montgomery. IDF gratefully acknowledges the unrestricted grant given by Bupa for the production of this report.
