ENBEL Knowledge Portal

The ENBEL knowledge portal presents knowledge on health impacts of climate change gathered through ENBEL and our network of climate and health partner research projects. The portal was first made available in May 2022.

Currently, the portal features an online library of training courses and learning material on climate change and health, policy briefs from ENBEL, videos and educational videos on climate change and health topics, scientific papers based on ENBEL work and public reports/project deliverables.
