The 2021 report of the Lancet Countdown on health and climate change: code red for a healthy future

The Lancet Countdown is an international collaboration that independently monitors
the health consequences of a changing climate. Publishing updated, new, and improved
indicators each year, the Lancet Countdown represents the consensus of leading researchers
from 43 academic institutions and UN agencies. The 44 indicators of this report expose
an unabated rise in the health impacts of climate change and the current health consequences
of the delayed and inconsistent response of countries around the globe—providing a
clear imperative for accelerated action that puts the health of people and planet
above all else.
