Research Perspectives on the Health Impacts of Climate Change

This high-level conference will bring together researchers, policymakers and relevant stakeholders to reflect on the research needs in the field of climate change and human health.

Climate change is a global existential challenge that has introduced unprecedented pressures on the planet which are already translating into significant consequences for human health.

Research and innovation (R&I) are key in delivering evidence and tools to understand, prevent and reduce the health impacts of these rapidly unfolding threats. However, there are numerous knowledge gaps that need to be filled and innovation opportunities that remain untapped.

There is also growing momentum and interest at the global level to increase coordination towards a forward-looking research agenda in climate change and health that will be capable of delivering robust evidence for the necessary adaptation and mitigation actions and policies.
