About the Lancet Countdown in Europe

Established in 2021, the Lancet Countdown in Europe tracks the connections between climate change and public health across Europe – drawing on the transdisciplinary expertise of 69 contributors spanning over 40 academic and UN institutions. With the wealth of data in Europe, the collaboration develops region-specific indicators to address the main challenges and opportunities of Europe’s response to climate change for health.

This is the second indicator report tracks 42 indicators across five domains highlighting the negative impacts of climate change on human health, the delayed climate action of European countries, and the missed opportunities to protect or improve health through health-responsive climate action. The report is due to be published in the morning of 13 May in the Lancet Public Health.

The German launch of the report takes place 23 May 2024 in Heidelberg, Germany, and online. To learn more, please click here.
