Climate Variability Drives Changes in Sand Fly Distribution, Amplifying Leishmaniasis Risks

Typically active during twilight hours, female sand flies primarily feed on mammalian blood, facilitating the transmission of viruses and parasites. These pathogens cause diseases such as summer meningitis and leishmaniasis, affecting humans and animals. Leishmaniasis, in particular, is classified as a neglected tropical disease by the World Health Organization, with an estimated 700,000 to 1 million new cases annually

Tracking pollution in the food chain

The Bay of Biscay is home to popular holiday resorts – and it’s the source of the regional Basque staple, squid. What are the effects of pollution and pathogens on the squid? And what could be the broader impacts of this?

Every year, approximately one million people die from vector-borne diseases, and climate change impacts are likely to worsen the situation

Climate change is already having adverse effects on the transmission and spread of vector-borne diseases, and the severity of these impacts is expected to escalate. The CLIMOS project is playing an important role in mitigating and preventing the transmission and spread of vector-borne diseases.

Climate-Health Cluster at ENBEL Conference: Health impacts of climate change, a way forward

The Climate-Health Cluster will participate in the ENBEL 2023 conference on 12 October 2023, in Stockholm, Sweden in a session focused on exploring the health effects of climate change, providing insights into the ongoing research conducted by the 6 Horizon Europe project forming the cluster.

BlueAdapt Annual Meeting 2023

BlueAdapt’s hybrid annual meeting in Bologna brought together over 40 experts to discuss pressing concerns facing coastal regions and bathing water quality in relation to climate change. Research and policy experts shared a wealth of knowledge and insights, merging various disciplines and research areas. Here’s a short summary of discussions from the meeting.
