Diabetes and Climate Change Report
Last update: 06/06/2018
Global trends in demography, migration, urbanisation, consumption and production are creating new challenges that threaten to damage human health and livelihoods, and derail human development and economic growth. Two urgent challenges in the 21st century are the global diabetes epidemic and climate change. Both are rapidly accelerating, are fuelled by changes in the way we live and work, and will have intergenerational effects on health, wellbeing and security.
The Diabetes and Climate Change Report - published in 2012 - aims to outline the interconnections between climate change and diabetes; establish the co-benefits of combating two global risks in an integrated policy agenda; and inform the global discussion on health and sustainable development.
