EDITORIAL

In 2017, the Centre will continue to explore the interactions between climate change, migration and health, as it did in 2016. Meanwhile, we continue our work on outbreaks, by organising a workshop at the French Embassy in Berlin in March 2017, ‘Putting Outbreaks into Perspective’. Once again the French and German governments renew their involvement with us on these topics. In 2017, we will also pursue our commitment to open science and education accessible to all.

New collaboration with The Lancet Countdown

The Lancet Countdown: Tracking Progress on Health and Climate Change is a new international, multi-disciplinary research collaboration between academic institutions and practitioners across the world. It is being established to track the different aspects of the relationship between health and climate change. Every year until 2030, it will identify and monitor the impacts of climate change on health and the benefits that an accelerated response brings. It will annually publish a report in The Lancet before the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change’s Conference of the Parties. The Centre is a partner of the project.
