Boosting Non-State Climate Action in the European Union

The 2015 Paris Agreement and the accompanying Paris Decision recognise the importance of climate actions by non-state actors, such as businesses, civil society organisations, cities, regions and cooperative initiatives, to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) and to adapt to climate change as necessary complements to governmental commitments. Nonstate actors based in the European Union (EU) can be considered global leaders


Meteorological severe weather warning system

World Health Organization - Regional Office for Europe

The World Health Organization (WHO) is the authority responsible for public health within the United Nations system. The WHO Regional Office for Europe (WHO/Europe) is one of WHO’s six regional offices around the world

Lancet Countdown

The  Lancet  Countdown: Tracking Progress on Health and Climate Change is an international, multidisciplinary collaboration, dedicated to monitoring the evolving health profile of climate change, and providing an independent assessment of the delivery of commitments made by governments worldwide under the Paris Agreement. The Lancet Countdown’s work is led by its technical experts and 35 leading academic centres across the world, UN agencies and EU agencies

European Food Safety Authority

The European Food Security Authority (EFSA) is a European agency funded by the European Union that operates independently of the European legislative and executive institutions (Commission, Council, Parliament) and EU Member States.   It was set up in 2002 following a series of food crises in the late 1990s to be a source of scientific advice and communication on risks associated with the food chain

European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control

Public health measures What is ECDC doing to address climate change? Generally speaking, climate change needs to be tackled via mitigation activities, which seek to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions, and via pro-active adaptation activities, which seek to prepare populations for the consequences of climate change. In public health and at ECDC, our activities are principally focused on adaptation

European Environment Agency

The European Environment Agency (EEA) is an agency of the European Union. The EEA provides sound, independent information on the environment for those involved in developing, adopting, implementing and evaluating environmental policy, and also the general public

European Commission

The European Commission is the executive branch of the European Union, responsible for proposing legislation, implementing decisions, upholding the EU treaties and managing the day-to-day business of the EU. This EU institution operates as a cabinet government, with 27 members of the Commission (informally known as "Commissioners")

Global heat health information network

The Global Heat Health Information Network is an independent, voluntary, and member-driven forum of scientists, practitioners, and policy makers focused on improving capacity to protect populations from the avoidable health risks of extreme heat in our changing climate.

European Drought Observatory (EDO)

The European Drought Observatory (EDO)  contain drought-relevant information such as  maps  of indicators derived from different data sources (e.g

EFFIS, European Forest Fire Information System

The European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS) has been established by the European Commission (EC) in collaboration with the national fire administrations to support the services in charge of the protection of forests against fires in the EU and neighbor countries, and also to provide the EC services and the European Parliament with harmonized information on forest fires in Europe. Since 1998, EFFIS is supported by a network of experts

European Flood Awareness System (EFAS)

The European Flood Awareness System (EFAS)   support preparatory measures before major flood events strike, particularly in the large trans-national river basins and throughout Europe in general.  EFAS is the first operational European system monitoring and forecasting floods across Europe

Floods and health

River and coastal flooding have affected many millions of people in Europe since 2000. Flooding affects human health through drowning, heart attacks, injuries, infections, exposure to chemical hazards and mental health consequences

Vector-borne diseases

The transmission cycles of vector-borne diseases are sensitive to climatic factors, but disease risks are also affected by factors such as land use, vector control, human behaviour, population movements and public health capacities. Climate change is regarded as the principal factor behind the observed move of the tick species Ixodes ricinus — the vector of Lyme borreliosis and tick-borne encephalitis in Europe — to higher latitudes and altitudes

Air pollution due to ozone: health impacts and effects of climate change

There was no discernible trend in European ozone concentrations between 2003 and 2012, in terms of the annual mean of the daily maximum eight hour average measured at any type of station. It is difficult to attribute observed ozone exceedences, or changes therein, to individual causes such as climate change

Vulnerability to Extremes of Heat in Europe

People over 65 years of age, particularly those with chronic medical conditions (such as diabetes and heart, lung and kidney disease), are among the most vulnerable to the health effects of heatwaves. In a world that is increasingly warming due to climate change, this indicator measures the vulnerability to heat of populations around the world

Extreme temperatures and health

Heat waves and extreme cold spells are associated with decreases in general population well-being and with increases in mortality and morbidity, especially in vulnerable population groups. Temperature thresholds for health impacts differ according to the region and season

Water- and food-borne diseases

It is not possible to assess whether past climate change has already affected water- and food-borne diseases in Europe, but the sensitivity of pathogens to climate factors suggest that climate change could be having effects on these diseases. The number of vibriosis infections, which can be life-threatening, has increased substantially in Baltic Sea states since 1980
