Join Professor Paul Ekins as he explores the links between global health and climate change in the context of the 2021 report of the Lancet Countdown on health and climate change: code red for a healthy future.
Prof Paul Ekins is Professor of Resources and Environmental Policy at the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources and member of the UCL-Lancet Commission on Global Health and Climate Change. The Lancet Countdown is an international collaboration that independently monitors the health consequences of a changing climate.
Paul co-authored its 2021 report which exposed an unabated rise in the health impacts of climate change and the current health consequences of the delayed and inconsistent response of countries around the globe. These findings provide a clear imperative for accelerated action that prioritises the health of people and the planet.
Besides, Paul is a member of the International Resource Panel (IRP) of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and he was the Co-Director of the UK Energy Research Centre and later the Deputy Director leading on its Energy Resources theme.
