New Observatory section on climate-sensitive impact of pollen on health

Pollen, released by various plant species, is one of the most common allergens in Europe and responsible for allergic diseases in people. Climate change affects people's exposure to pollen and the process of becoming allergic. The Observatory now includes a dedicated section describing the impact of pollen on human health, observed and projected effects of climate change on pollen, and examples of policy responses to reduce the burden for human health and its economic costs.

The section can be found here.
