Unequal exposure and unequal impacts: social vulnerability to environmental health hazards in Europe

Targeted action is needed to better protect the poor, the elderly and children from environmental hazards like air and noise pollution and extreme temperatures, especially in Europe’s eastern and southern regions. A European Environment Agency (EEA) report recently published warns that the health of Europe’s most vulnerable citizens remains disproportionately affected by these hazards, despite overall improvements in Europe’s environmental quality. Among the authors of the report, CMCC researcher Margaretha Breil in the framework of the ETC/CCA activities […]

Malaria: increases in mortality due to climate change

A disease of great public health concern affecting nearly half of the world’s population, and it is spreading across countries. Malaria also seems to be one of the health outcomes most sensitive to climate change. Child mortality, accounting for 70% of total malaria mortality, is likely to increase by up to 20% in some areas due to climate change by the end of the 21st century. A study by CMCC researcher S. Dasgupta investigated the relationship between climatic exposure and malaria mortality […]
