This analytical document aims to inform discussions at the 2009 Copenhagen conference of parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. Authored by an international group of public health, environmental, and other scientists, each focuses on one sector in which greenhouse-gas emissions need to be reduced. These sectors are household energy use, urban land transport, electricity generation, and food and agriculture. Health implications of actions are examined in both high-income and low-income countries designed to reduce the release of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases.
