[Comment] Human and planetary health: towards a common language

With less than 5 months until the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change is held in Paris, France, the world has a unique but fast-closing window of opportunity. It is vital that the global community recognises that human and planetary health are two sides of the one climate coin, and that together they present a critical road for comitigation. But as we enter the second half of 2015—a year that will bring a new global development agenda with the Sustainable Development Goals, a World EXPO on Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, and a defining juncture for climate action—it is the intersections of sustainability and health and their effect on climate mitigation that must be recognised, prioritised, and leveraged.
