LUCSUS report on global health and climate change published

Researchers from Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies, one of the seven campuses of the Right Livelihood College, published a new report that presents an overview of the interconnections between health and the environment, with a focus on the serious health risks posed by climate change.

The report focuses on how to use science to both reduce the burden of spreading diseases and influence policy-making. It also advocates the adoption of a rights-based approach to global health practice in order to move away from the current focus on the pharmaceutical industry.

The report was presented at a parliament seminar with Laureates Nnimmo Bassey and Dr. Hans Herren who were also consulted in the research process for the report.
