Abstract

The Lancet Countdown : Tracking Progress on Health and Climate Change was formed in 2016 to address the idea that tackling climate change could be the greatest global health opportunity of the 21st century. It highlighted the need for a global monitoring system, focusing on key areas of health and climate change, with the ability to engage policymakers and support health professionals. The 2020 report is officialy launched on December 2, and this event constitutes its launch event in France. It will provide a general overview of the report's content, highlighting the implications of the climate crisis on urban health and providing a focus on French data. 

This event is emblematic of the relationship between the University of Paris and Sciences Po, to create a research community working on the joint exploration of the relationships between nature and society.
