Climate Change & Health

The CVV conducts research on the links between climate change and health.

Indeed, climate change has severe impacts on health: adverse weather events worsen living conditions, heat waves provoke cardio-respiratory affections, mental health issues are on the rise while infectious diseases emerge in new patterns. But climate change is not just a threat for public health: it can also be an opportunity to improve health.

Many actors are key to raising awareness on the link between climate change and health. In order to study how these actors communicate on this issue, the CVV has developed a research project entitled “4C-Health” (for “Center for Climate Change Communication & Health“).

The CVV also organized several events on climate change, climate migration and health.
