Crown Agents Limited

Crown Agents is a non-profit international development company that works in partnership with governments, multilateral institutions, donors, and the private sector to tackle the complex challenges of our time; climate change being one of them. Our climate & health portfolio takes a multi-sectoral systems approach to strengthening and integrating resilience into health systems. Our long-standing in-country relationships are built on trust which enable us to convene and facilitate engagement across ministries and stakeholder groups.

Our focus on building climate-smart health infrastructure spans facility level sustainable energy access (solar for health), climate resilient WASH and healthcare waste management. As a key global player in health supply chains, Crown Agents also has important leverage that it is using to contribute to efforts to decarbonise health supply chains. Our existing track in governance, procurement and PFM for health enables a robust approach and we take a cross-cutting approach to programming which enables us to embed the climate perspective in all our health programmes.

Supporting the following commitments:

  • Conduct climate change and health vulnerability and adaptation assessments (V&As) at population level and/or health care facility level.
  • Develop a health national adaptation plan (HNAP) informed by the health V&A, which forms part of the National Adaptation Plan.
  • Use the V&A and HNAP to facilitate access to climate change funding for health.
  • Develop an action plan or roadmap by a set date to develop a sustainable low carbon health system (including supply chains).
