Pathways to a healthy net-zero future: report of the Lancet Pathfinder Commission
This event will present key findings and recommendations from the Lancet Pathfinder Commission report on the health benefits of climate action.
The Pathfinder Initiative will publish its Lancet Commission report on 21 November, ahead of COP28 in Dubai.
The report will present findings on the health co-benefits of greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation by sector from an umbrella review, as well as case studies showing evaluated examples of implemented actions. The review and case studies cover a wide range of initiatives across energy, transport, the built environment, agrifood systems, industry, sanitation and nature-based solutions.
The Lancet Pathfinder Commission is part of the wider Pathfinder Initiative that aims to accelerate the just transition to net-zero healthy societies and communicate research findings to a range of decision-makers in sectors contributing large proportions of GHG emissions. Research is led by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), and partner organisations include the C40 Cities network, CDP, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), and the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research. The initiative is funded by the Wellcome Trust with support from the Oak Foundation.
This hybrid event will take place in person at LSHTM and online and will bring together a diverse group of thought leaders, decision-makers, climate and health experts and advocates from around the world to discuss pathways to a healthier net-zero future for all.
