The CVV has assembled an interdisciplinary research team to investigate the treatment of climate change and health among scientists, policymakers, and the public. The project consists of three separate reviews aimed at analyzing current knowledge, gaps in understanding, and communication between the three groups of critical involved parties in the climate change debate. This umbrella project in- cluded systematic reviews of scientific literature on climate change and health as well as the co-benefits of climate change adaptation, an analysis of EU legislation, and a view of the treatment of climate change and health in the French media. This work promotes the CVV’s active role in translating scientific knowledge to real-world change, a central goal of public health. Results from the first stages of this study were recently presented at the World Health Summit in Berlin.
