"Heat-waves: risks and responses" A joint report by the German Weather Service (DWD), the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and WHO/Europe.
A changing climate is expected to increase average summer temperatures and the frequency and intensity of hot days. Heat-waves in Europe are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Ongoing epidemiological studies will better describe and contribute substantial evidence to the understanding of health effects of heat-waves in Europe and add significantly to targeting interventions. This report summarizes the main findings of reviews carried out within the cCASHh project and of a consultative workshop with experts and stakeholders from 10 countries. It addresses the health impact of heat as well as aspects of prevention and adaptation such as heat health warning systems, urban planning elements and aspects of building design.
