By now, it is common knowledge that vulnerable groups (particularly in the Global South) are predominantly affected by climate change. Against the backdrop of temperature rising, soil degradation and an increasing frequency of pandemics, health standards need to be given particular attention. In this case, due to the country-specific data and analyses of the CCPI, conclusions can be drawn to promote general health measures and to underline health as the basis for most human rights which cannot be considered separately from the promotion of sustainable development. Moreover, CCPI data can serve as one indicator to evaluate the success of national health strategies.
