Working to ensure equitable solutions to Oregon's climate and health crises
Oregon's Climate and Health Program is working with partners to study, prevent and plan for the health effects of climate change.
Our response to Governor Brown’s executive order on climate change
In March 2020, Governor Kate Brown issued Executive Order (EO) 20-04 directing State Agencies to take action on climate change. The EO includes a number of general directives to state agencies, as well as three directives specific to the Oregon Health Authority (OHA). The
Climate and Health in Oregon 2020 report is our first deliverable.
OHA submitted a letter to the Governor’s Office in response to the executive order that provides background on our climate and health program and how OHA plans to respond to the EO’s directives to our agency. You can find all State agency responses on the Governor's Carbon Policy Webpage.
