WIT Conferences

 

Health and Environment:
Global Partners for Global Solutions Conference.

 

Since l992, WIT has convened what we believe to be one of the world’s premier forums for the presentation of scientific papers by international experts on the growing clinical evidence supporting the link between degrading environments and diminished human health. The conference has been convened as a parallel event to the annual meeting of the UN Commission on Sustainable Development. The scientific papers presented at the conference are available on WIT’s web site.
