Description

The 2019 Report of The Lancet Countdown on health and climate change presents the latest data on 41 indicators across five domains: climate change impacts, exposures and vulnerabilities; adaptation planning and resilience for health; mitigation actions and health co-benefits; economics and finance; and public and political engagement.

On Friday March 27th from 6:30PM to 8:30PM in RCSI we invite those working in health (health policy, clinical practice, academia, etc.) to join us to explore the key findings from the latest Lancet Countdown Report and catalyse action and understanding of environmental health in Ireland and internationally.
