The Imperative of Climate Action to Protect Human Health in Europe

” ‘Climate change is the defining issue of our time and now is the defining moment to do something about  it’

Previous work by the European Academies’ Science Advisory Council (EASAC) has addressed a wide range of issues for climate change action in Europe, for example the role of forests in providing ecosystem services and the potential contribution to be made by Negative Emissions Technologies in mitigation. An EASAC report published in March 2019 on decarbonisation of transport emphasised the needs for drastic societal change and decisive political action and proposes a set of concrete actions to policy makers.”
