This topic relates to the Mission’s second objective, aiming to mobilise at least 150 regions in testing the solutions most locally needed to build climate resilience in the context of health. The proposal should develop and test innovative solutions, combining technological, social and business innovation, leading to an increase of the resilience and adaptation capacity to climate change in the involved regions and communities of the agriculture sector and the related value chains.
-Improved insights into short- and long-term health effects of climate-related stressors, including incorporating planetary health considerations (interactions between climate change, ecosystems health and human health)
-Strengthening comprehensive and user friendly epidemiological surveillance and modelling tools, including socio-economic trajectories of exposure and vulnerability to climate change impacts
-Preparing training curricula on health and climate change for medical and other healthcare professionals across Europe
-Development of better forecast and decision-making models for health impacts of climate change
-Development of innovative solutions (technological solutions, NBS, etc) to reduce impact of climate change on human health and wellbeing
-Involvement of regional, local, and community authorities in the development and testing of a whole range of transformative solutions that will help to mitigate the effect of climate change on health and human wellbeing, including making the health sector more climate resilient
-Development and testing of climate resilience solutions that protect human health
