It is a pleasure to invite you for an asso webinar on

MSF’s climate commitments and how they are being operationalized.

April 18, 18-19 CET

online via zoom


The evidence of the health and humanitarian consequences of climate and global environmental change is extensive. MSF is seeing first-hand the suffering caused or exacerbated by climate change and environmental degradation, most often experienced by the most vulnerable people.

Recognising the role of the climate crisis in amplifying humanitarian needs, MSF is adapting its operations to be more responsive to the populations it serves. Whilst at the same time being driven by the principle of ‘do no harm’ (to avoid taking any measure that risks doing greater harm than good) MSF also recognises its duty to reduce and mitigate its own environmental footprint.

But how are these commitments being operationalized? 

During the session we will hear about current global efforts to act on our shared commitments from Climate Smart MSF, from OCBA and OCG on how they are working with their roadmaps, and concrete examples of climate friendly solutions that are being implemented. To learn more before the event, see the attached concept paper below. 

The event is jointly organized by the MSF-AT and MSF-Spain Associations.
