What does the latest IPCC report mean for human health?
The Global Climate and Health Alliance has developed this briefing report, film and series of infographics to explain the health implications of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Working Group II report.
They summarise some of the IPCC’s key findings, discuss their implications for health, and provide recommendations on the way forward.
Climate change could be 'the biggest global health threat of the 21st century’, but by working together, we can turn it into this century's greatest opportunity for public health.
