Governance for Planetary Health Equity – The Planetary Health Equity Hothouse project

Planetary health equity (PHE) is defined here as the equitable enjoyment of good health in a stable Earth system. PHE is in crisis. Despite evidence of these massive challenges and multiple calls to action, why has there been so little effective remedial action? And more importantly, how can we overcome this failure? To answer these questions, join ARC Laureate Fellow Prof Sharon Friel to discuss new research for understanding power, politics, policies, people and processes that enable coherent governance to improve planetary health equity outcomes.
