UCL Centre for Climate Change, Migration, Conflict and Health

The Centre for Climate Change, Migration, Conflict, and Health aims to provide world-leading expertise on the links between public health and climate change, migration  and conflict, as well as policy and humanitarian responses to disasters and complex emergencies.  Our current research areas include: the impacts of, and responses to  climate change, especially for the Arctic and small islands; the health of people with  disabilities in disaster and their involvement in disaster risk reduction; climate  change, migration, conflict, disasters, and health in border zones; the development  of indicators for climate change and health; the use of cash transfers to reduce acute malnutrition in complex emergencies; the use of longitudinal nutrition and health  surveillance systems to improve epidemiology and response in humanitarian emergencies.  The centre also hosts the UCL-Lancet Commission on Migration and Health, and The Lancet Countdown: Tracking Progress on Health and Climate Change  initiative.
