Lancet Countdown 2018 Report: Briefing for Canadian Policymakers

2018/11


Climate change is the biggest global health threat of the 21st century, and tackling it could be our greatest health opportunity. In this era of strained ecological systems, is clear that our ability to optimize Planetary Health, defined as “the health of human civilization and the natural systems upon which it depends,” will define wellness globally for generations to come.

This briefing, launched in parallel with the 2018 International Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change, focuses on the links between climate change and health, and their implications for Canadian policymakers. It has been developed in conjunction with the Canadian Medical Association and the Canadian Public Health Association, and draws on data provided by the Lancet Countdown to make evidence-informed recommendations.
