The French National Institute for Health and Medical Research (INSERM) and the French infrastructure BIOBANQUES in collaboration with ISC have a pleasure of inviting to the seminar entitled “COP21 Responding to Health and Data Challenges. Case for Climate Change and Atmospheric Pollution”, dedicated to the question of optimal climate change policy responses to support data analytics usage for health research. Microbiome will be discussed as a case for relevance of systemic approach towards collecting and analysing environment around humans, especially agriculture, and translating findings to a healthcare and environmental policy.
Purpose of the meeting:
In relation to the Global Agreement to be adopted by the COP21 conference, the planned meeting will focus on areas of health data allowing bio-monitoring of climate related diseases, as well as the wide theme of microbiome and influence of ecosystem on human health. The main objective of the seminar is to outline possible project ideas in above mentioned areas, which would build the case for sustained action by estimation and compilation of the burden of climate changes and the main risk factors, the cost and cost-effectiveness of interventions, the unmet need for prevention and treatment services, and the need for interventions outside the health sector.
