The climate crisis and its health impacts
At the launch of our climate change and health report, we will be addressing how climate change impacts human health, what can be done to prevent or mitigate such impacts and why it's important to prioritise public health in the climate debate and methods to achieve this.
With more than 70,000 excess deaths during the 2003 heatwave in Europe, the acceleration of certain vector-borne diseases, poor air quality and increasing levels of climate anxiety, climate change is already having adverse health impacts on people’s physical and mental health.
This report comprehensively addresses some of the most threatening health impacts of climate change. Each of the chapters within the report analyses the relation between climate change and the consequential health impacts and, through a series of case studies, showcases best practise on how we can tackle this. The report serves not just to highlight the extent of the link between climate change and health but also demonstrates that solutions are in our grasp to prevent and mitigate the health consequences of climate change.
