European Launch of the 2021 Lancet Countdown Report with ASPHER Fellow Rana Orhan
When: 2 Dec 2021
Organiser: The Lancet

In the context of the climate negotiations in COP26, the 2021 report of the Lancet Countdown discusses the latest evidence on how the climate emergency is undermining the foundations of good health, as well as detailing the health benefits of a rapid and robust response to the climate emergency.

Over the past years the European Union (EU) has increased its climate ambition by – among others – the ratification of the 2015 Paris Agreement and commitment to the second phase of the Kyoto protocol. Most notably, as the third biggest greenhouse gas emitter in the world, the EU has pledged in the European Green Deal to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. By preventing impacts from climate change on public health as well as utilizing the health co-benefits action Europe has the opportunity to safeguard the health of generations to come.

On 2nd December (15:30-17:00 CET), ASPHER Fellow Rana Orhan will join other leading academics and policymakers to contextualise the findings of the 2021 Lancet Countdown report for Europe.
