The Global Environmental Change and Human Health (GECHH) is a Joint Project of the Earth System Science Partnership (ESSP) from to respond to the growing need to better understand the multi-faceted and complex linkages between global environmental change (including climate change, land and sea use change, global biodiversity loss and change, global socio-economic change) and human health. The GECHH aims at elucidating the spectrum and magnitude of risks to human wellbeing and health, consequent upon human-induced global environmental changes, in order that society at large can have a fuller understanding of the actual and likely consequences of the ways in which, collectively, human societies are changing the Earth System.
