This year’s report represents the work of 99 researchers from 51 institutions in every continent. With new and updated indicators, it will be launched ahead of the 27th UN Conference of the Parties (COP27), providing new evidence to support accelerated climate action and prompt fossil fuel phase out to protect the health of populations around the world.

As the health impacts of climate change are increasingly felt by populations in every country, threats to our food security, disease transmission, and impacts on our livelihoods are now compounding with the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, energy and cost of living crises. In the response to these coexisting crises, the world is at a critical juncture. Our responses offer a chance to unlock a thriving future based on cleaner, greener, renewable energies with a definite move away from fossil fuels enabling all to live in a more secure environment.


Launching at this critical moment, the virtual global launch of the 2022 Report of the Lancet Countdown has convened a group of inspiring speakers to lead in the discussions on the findings from the 2022 report and the health impacts of climate change. We will welcome keynote speeches from Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization; Dr Richard Horton, Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet; the Hon Mia Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados; the Rt Hon Helen Clark, former Prime Minister of New Zealand and Chair of the Lancet Countdown High-Level Advisory Board; and Dr Marina Romanello, Executive Director of the Lancet Countdown. A panel of experts from different disciplines will discuss the implications of our findings for the health and wellbeing of people around the world, and provide insights into the path forward to ensure a thriving future.

A full agenda for the event and confirmed speakers will be available soon. Please visit our website for the latest updates and further details on other regional and national launch events happening around the world.

We look forward to seeing you online.
