The data in this article investigated the extent of human rights awareness in the Northwest geopolitical zone of Nigeria and its relationship with the characteristics of the population in the light of limited human rights claims in the region.
The drive to curb carbon emissions — and remove carbon from the atmosphere to the point where society is making a “net zero” contribution to CO2 levels — is essentially a scramble to secure our future on this planet. A new report from Elsevier aims to advance the understanding of research and innovation in net zero and how it supports the drive toward a clean-energy future.

COP26 is the 2021 United Nations annual climate change conference. COP stands for Conference of the Parties. Parties are the signatories of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) - a treaty agreed in 1994 which has 197 Parties (196 countries and the EU). The 2021 conference, hosted by the UK, together with our partners Italy, in Glasgow, will be the 26th meeting of the Parties, which is why it's called COP26.

The Lancet Countdown is an international collaboration that independently monitors the health consequences of a changing climate. Publishing updated, new, and improved indicators each year, the Lancet Countdown represents the consensus of leading researchers from 43 academic institutions and UN agencies.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a rapidly developing field contributing to the English National Health Service (NHS) goals of more efficient care and reduced climate impact.
This Article addresses SDG 3 by modelling the global, regional, and national mortality burden associated with non-optimal ambient temperature between 2000 and 2019. The study used data on 130 million deaths in 43 countries and found that, overall, non-optimal temperatures were associated with 74 excess deaths per 100 000 residents. There was substantial geographical variation in this burden. Overall there was a large decrease in the cold-related excess death ratio, and a moderate increase in the heat-related excess death ratio. The findings could be used in developing preparedness and prevention strategies to reduce weather-related health impacts in the short-term and under longer-term climate change scenarios.
