Free training on climate change, migration, and health in Latin America and the Caribbean

5 March 2024 - 5 November 2024 | Webinar Series | Online
Free training on climate change, migration, and health in Latin America and the Caribbean

Over the course of 2024, the region will have the opportunity for free training through five webinars organized by a network of international institutions. The objective is to provide specific knowledge and case studies on the intersection between climate change, migration, and health in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC).

The webinar series “Climate Change, Migration and Health in Latin America and the Caribbean” is scheduled from March 5, 2024 to November 5, 2024. The sessions will be held every two months in Spanish and English, with interpretation.

The webinars have been organized by institutions committed to research and health promotion in Latin America and the Caribbean:

The webinars will focus on current knowledge of scientific evidence and experiences in LAC, as well as on the efforts deployed in the various countries and communities in different countries of the region. We highlight the valuable participation of Carol Zavaleta, based at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia (Lima, Peru), and Jeremy Pittman, Associate Professor at the University of Waterloo and Principal Investigator of the IAI Small Grants Program.
