Out now: An Australian glossary for climate change and health

Monday 01 March 2021

A shared climate and health language is key for effective cross-disciplinary research and collaboration — which is why USYD researchers have put together a new Australian glossary on climate and health! See how your vocabulary of key climate and health terminology fits!

This project was led by A/Prof Ying Zhang & Prof Lucie Rychetnik from the University of Sydney. The glossary, published in February 2021, strives to improve communication and common language for the broad community working towards improving climate and health goals within Australia. 

The glossary has been targeted towards "researchers from various disciplines who need to collaborate to conduct multi-disciplinary research on health and climate change, and partners and end-users who need to understand and use that research to drive change (e.g. policy, business, and other decision makers)."
