LWEC - Health report card

Climate change is likely to have a wide range of impacts on health - some harmful, others potentially beneficial. This LWEC report card summarises the latest scientific evidence and understanding of how climate change may affect the health of the UK population. It has been designed to make it easier to understand the nature of the possible changes and to help inform decisions that will protect our wellbeing.

The report card is based on ten technical review papers commissioned to provide in-depth analyses of specific topics. Each paper has been peer reviewed by leading experts and is available under 'Source papers'.
