Presentation on Climate Action, Respiratory Pandemics and Built Environment, to CMHC, GFHS and (soon) to Beyond 2020

An iiSBE overview of issues related to Climate Action, Respiratory Pandemics and the Built Environment, was recently presented to senior staff of Canada Mortgage and Housing Coropration (CMHC) and the UN-sponsored Global Forum on Human Settlements (GFHS).The same file will be the focus of an international panel that will be held as part of the Beyond 2020 international conference, to be (virtually) held in Gothenburg on 02 November.

Of special interest to iiSBE is that the presenters at GFHS included Serge Salat (Paris), Nils Larsson (Ottawa) and Zhang Guoqiang (Hunan).
