UCL briefings for Commonwealth Health Ministers published
The publication of six briefing papers on managing the health effects of climate change were commissioned from UCL by the Commonwealth Secretariat for the May 2009 meeting of Commonwealth Health Ministers.
The briefings drew on the report of the UCL–Lancet Commission on Managing the Health Effects of Climate Change, which was launched just prior to the Commonwealth Health Ministers Meeting on Health & Climate Change and the World Health Assembly meeting (which sets priorities for the World Health Organisation) on 17–18 May 2009. The report asserted that climate change is the biggest global-health threat of the 21st century. It was the work of UCL academics from many disciplines across the university – including health, anthropology, geography, engineering, economics, law and philosophy.
