Open Consultation on Research Priorities for Health, Climate and Environment

The Future Earth Health Knowledge-Action Network (KAN) has recently developed a preliminary synthesis document on research priorities for health, climate and environment. The paper outlines potential priorities for health research that seeks to: protect and improve human health by elucidating, and finding effective responses to, the complex interactions amongst environmental change, pollution, pathogens, disease vectors, risk factors, ecosystem services, and people’s livelihoods, nutrition, health and well-being.

The document is available at this link. (This is based on a previous longer version available at this link).

We now invite the wider community to review the document and give feedback in order to see if there are any missing pieces that have not yet been addressed. We invite feedback from both individuals and institutions. Feedback will be which incorporated into a final version of the document that will then serve as input to a Belmont Forum scoping process for a future Collaborative Research Action.
