Climate change and health

The Academy has been involved in two statements about the health co-benefits of policies to tackle climate change


In November 2009 the Academy released a statement on climate change to coincide with the publication in the Lancet of a series of studies on the impact of strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions on public health.

The statement highlighted the major threat to the health of populations across the globe presented by climate change. It outlined the increasing evidence that mitigation strategies can be developed that, in addition to reducing GHG emissions and associated climate change, have sizeable and near-term benefits to health in both high- and low-income countries. It called on world leaders to realise these health co-benefits as they negotiate strategies to combat climate change.
