The Lancet Countdown: Tracking Progress on Health and Climate Change exists to monitor the transition from climate threat to health opportunity. We are a collaboration of leading experts from academic institutions and UN agencies across the globe, bringing together climate scientists, engineers, energy specialists, economists, political scientists, public health professionals and doctors. Each year our findings are published annually in medical journal The Lancet ahead of the UN climate change negotiations. Our data makes clear how climate change is affecting our health, the consequences of delayed action and the health benefits of a robust response.
