Speaker at ‘The Climate Emergency: Research gaps, policy priorities and funding’ webinar

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description of Activity

The aim of the meeting was to bring physiologists from across the world together to advance the role of physiological research in tackling climate change.

Outcomes from meeting:

 Identification of the key research gaps in the area of physiology and climate change that will be used to support funding organisations in this area

 Proposed priorities for public policy changes informed by existing understanding of physiology

 A written up report based on the discussions that will be published by The Society

Key questions at the meeting:

Q1. What are the physiology research gaps funders should focus on that will make a meaningful difference to climate mitigation and adaption?

Q2. Based on our understanding of existing physiological research, what action should policy makers prioritise right now to protect human health in the face of climate change?
