Lancet Countdown in Europe


The Lancet Countdown: Tracking Progress on Health and Climate Change is an international research collaboration that brings together 120 leading experts to monitor how the world’s changing climate is impacting public health. Every year, the Lancet Countdown publishes a report that harnesses the latest global data to make clear how climate change is affecting our health, the consequences of delayed action and the health benefits of a robust response.

The Lancet Countdown in Europe is a new transdisciplinary research collaboration launched in September 2021 to monitor progress on health and climate change in Europe. Building on the work of the global Lancet Countdown and other regions, it leverages the wealth of data and cross disciplinary expertise in Europe, to develop region-specific indicators to address the main challenges and opportunities of Europe’s response to climate change for health. The indicators provide information to guide health and climate policy decision making and contribute to the European Observatory on Climate and Health.
