Heat waves and human health: emerging evidence and experience to inform risk management in a warming world

Source(s):  United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

This report from the USAID-funded Adaptation Thought Leadership and Assessments (ATLAS) project examines efforts to better understand and manage the risks of extreme heat on human wellbeing, including the public health burden heat poses and the direct and indirect impacts of heat waves. The report offers a review of available heat early warning systems around the world and recommendations for advancing research to develop tools and climate-resilient systems that are adaptive, contextually appropriate, and can improve the capacity of health professionals and policy makers to safeguard the human health in a warming world.
