The story that has gripped the countries of Southeast Asia in the last decade is a story of climate disasters, economic and social struggles, and now a formidable pandemic. In spite of that, the journey of this region is also about standing up, courageously facing adversity, and uniting to build better — this is where “RISE” comes from. RISE signifies responsiveness, resilience and recovery. It also means facing the problem and mobilizing people and institutions towards the right solutions.

In this crucial moment in history, RISE Alliance aims to strengthen and mobilize healthcare leadership on climate action and healthy, equitable recovery for Southeast Asia

3. Be a resource person for various health & climate initiatives (as a speaker, trainer, organizer, advocate, researcher, etc.). Share your resources and contribute to the resource pool on health and climate information/ tools/ etc. Be a “Healthcare Climate Champion” and advocate for the transformation of health systems and society towards becoming resilient, decarbonized, and equitable.
