Green Health Alliance is designed to serve as a catalyst and platform to drive this collaboration for impactful outcomes for strong and resilient health ecosystems and affirmative climate action. It seeks to bring together key actors from the private and public sectors, to collaborate for climate action in health in India.

The Green Health Alliance (GHA) is conceived as an action-oriented alliance of diverse stakeholders that are united by a common vision of supporting climate resilience in the health ecosystem. The alliance is supported by USAID, Rockefeller Foundation, Asian Development Bank and the Office of the Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India, and incubated and hosted by the Catalyst Group. Founded as a part of our work at COVIDActionCollab.

GHA – A HIVE OF ACTIVITY AND ACTION

Honeybees are a remarkably organized society. A healthy honey-bee hive functions as a polished and well-oiled machine, thanks to tens of thousands of bees, each performing their jobs dutifully. A bee hive is known as a ‘super-organism’ as no single bee can survive on its own. There is division of labour and every bee must carry out their own duties and co-operate with one another to survive and thrive.
