Hans Kluge, the regional director for Europe at the World Health Organisation (WHO), says the current response to climate change is “dangerously inconsistent and far too slow.’’

He said “Climate change and the crises it has triggered have long been clear health emergencies.

He also said “WHO and its partners have long sounded the alarm,’’ urging participants of the ongoing United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) in Egypt to act faster and more coherently.

To avoid increasing exposure and vulnerability to heat waves and other extreme weather events, Kluge called for drastic adaptation and mitigation measures that could tackle climate change and improve individual, societal and planetary health.

According to Kluge, the devastating wildfires that hit Europe last summer have caused the highest carbon emissions since 2007, polluting our air, killing many people.

He warned that extreme temperatures caused heat stress, which had become the leading weather-related cause of death in Europe.
