Notes

Abstract:The Lancet Countdown tracks progress on the relationships between human health and climate change, providing an independent assessment of global progress to implement the Paris Agreement, and the health implications of these actions. It follows on from the work of the 2015 Lancet Commission, which concluded that anthropogenic climate change threatens to undermine the last 50 years of gains in public health, and conversely, that a comprehensive response to climate change could be “the greatest global health opportunity of the 21st century”. The Lancet Countdown exists as a collaboration between 24 academic institutions and inter-governmental organisations, based in every continent, and with representation from a wide range of disciplines, including: climate scientists, ecologists, economists, engineers, experts in energy, food and transport systems, geographers, mathematicians, social and political scientists, public health professionals, and physicians. The collaboration reports annual indicators across five domains: climate change impacts, exposures and vulnerability; adaptation planning and resilience for health; mitigation actions and health co-benefits; economics and finance; and public and political engagement.
