“The links between health and climate change are undeniable. 120 world-leading experts, including authors from 38 academic institutions and UN agencies spanning every continent have looked at more than 40 indicators for the 2020 Report of the Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change.
Climate change is threatening the health of people around the world. It is no longer a future problem. Our food stocks are compromised, our land is burning, our air is polluted, and the hospitals and clinics we depend on are under increasing pressure. Yet, responding to climate change offers a brighter future for global health. Cleaner skies, healthier diets, and more liveable cities.
Launching amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, we will reveal and explore the latest global health profile of climate change in the context of this unprecedented and challenging moment in time. On the eve of the five-year anniversary of the Paris Agreement, and as we look ahead to the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties, COP26, we will discuss the consequences of delayed action for public health, and the health, economic and societal benefits of a robust and rapid response.”
