Human health and environmental change  

Monza has just hosted the conference 'Towards global human health and wellbeing in a changing environment: climate, forests and water: the role of the United Nations University Institute for Water Environment and Health (Unu-Inweh) and the Global Environmental Change and Human Health (Gechh) Project' organized by the Water Research Institute (Irsa) of the Italian National Research Council (Cnr).

The Gechh was launched in 2006 as a joint project of the Earth System Science Partnership (Essp) to respond to the growing need to understand better the multi-faceted and complex linkages between global environmental change (including climate change, land and sea use change, global biodiversity loss and change, global socio-economic change) and human health. It aims at elucidating the spectrum and magnitude of risks to human wellbeing and health, consequent upon human-induced global environmental changes, in order that society at large has a fuller understanding of the actual and likely consequences of the ways in which, collectively, human societies are changing the Earth System.
