Human health under threat by extreme heat and air pollution

Extreme heat and high levels of air pollution create a major and immediate threat to human health. How should climate research respond?

A wet, hot future

There are heat waves, and then there are humid heat waves. A warmer atmosphere can hold more moisture. This is going to make tomorrow’s heat waves dangerously hot.

Heat waves in Africa every year from 2040?

Climate analysis shows that periods of unusually hot weather are on the rise for one of the most vulnerable continents to climate change, even if the increase in global average temperature remains at a modest level.

ClimINVEST - Tools for climate-resilient investment

<strong>Climate change is increasingly affecting financial assets across the globe. The ClimINVEST project brings scientists and investors together to develop tailored tools for assessing physical climate risk and identifying climate-resilient investment opportunities. </strong>

Airborne CAS

Airborne studies human dimensions of air pollution in China in a historical perspective. How do people’s experiences and fears of air pollution transform into new visions of sustainability and creative forms of action?

ClimateXL

Weather and climate extremes are likely to be one of the largest societal challenges associated with climate change in this century. Under climate change, these extreme events will intensify and become more frequent, and consequently the risk of severe and costly damage for humans and infrastructure will increase.

CiXPAG - Interaction of Climate Extremes, Air Pollution and Agro-ecosystems

Future food production, and consequently food security, is very sensitive to both climate change and air pollution. So far, little is known about how climate extremes and ozone pollution interact to affect agriculture or about the relative effectiveness of climate change adaptation and ozone regulation measures for various crops and regions.
