Testing and demonstrating transformative solutions to build resilience towards health risks caused by the effects of climate change

Deadline: 20 September 2023

Expected outcome:

Projects are expected to contribute to all of the following outcomes:

  • regions, local authorities and communities have been involved in development and testing of a whole range of transformative solutions that will help to mitigate the effects of climate change on health and human wellbeing, including making the public health sector more climate resilient and better prepared to mitigate the change related health challenges;
  • climate resilience solutions that protect human health have been developed, tested and are made largely available.


This topic relates to the Mission’s objectives to mobilise at least 150 regions in testing the solutions most locally needed to build climate resilience and to deliver at least 75 deep demonstrations of systemic transformations to climate resilience.

The proposals should test and demonstrate solutions that address both the two aspects below, including in the scope at least some of the individual points related to improve prevention and policy-making and at least some points related to improve preparedness of the health system.

  1. Improved insights into short and long term health effects of climate-related stressors;
  2. Strengthening comprehensive and user friendly epidemiological surveillance and modelling and forecasting tools.
