ENBEL: Connecting health and climate change research

Climate change is according to the WHO the greatest threat to human health in the 21st century. By bringing together leaders in climate change and health research the CICERO-coordinated Horizon 2020 project ENBEL will contribute with knowledge and policy advice on climate change and health links.

Global fossil CO2 emissions dropped by 17% amid coronavirus lockdowns

Daily global fossil CO2 emissions fell by 17% in early April 2020 compared to 2019 amid coronavirus lockdowns in most countries, with full-year 2020 emissions set to decrease by up to 7% depending on future social distancing.

HEATCOST

HEATCOST will quantify health risks attributable to heat and air pollution (with a particular focus on air pollution from wildfires) in main world regions under selected climate scenarios and socioeconomic pathways. 

ACRoBEAR – high-latitude risk of wildfire and disease

The ACRoBEAR (Arctic Community Resilience to Boreal Environmental Change: Assessing Risks from fire and disease) project will quantify changing risk of boreal forest fire and natural-focal disease for local communities in high northern latitudes under changing environmental and climatic conditions.

Coronavirus and climate: Five scientists share their views

Over the past few weeks, there has been a decline in air pollution and a change in people’s habits and communication forms following the introduction of strict measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus. We have asked five CICERO scientists – each with different academic backgrounds – three questions about Covid-19’s impact on the climate.

How changes brought on by coronavirus could help tackle climate change

Global carbon emissions are likely to fall in 2020 due to reduced economic activity as a result of the coronavirus, and changes brought on by the crisis could influence how emissions evolve in future, writes CICERO researcher Glen Peters.
