The EU adaptation strategy aims to build resilience and ensure that Europe is well prepared to manage the risks from and adapt to the impacts of climate change, including limiting economic losses and other harm.
Extreme weather events in 2021, including a deep winter freeze, floods, severe thunderstorms, heatwaves and a major hurricane, resulted in annual insured losses from natural catastrophes estimated at USD 105 billion, the fourth highest since 1970.
This study aims to estimate the future effect of climate change on temperature-attributable mortality across Europe. Europe has emerged as a major climate change hotspot, both in terms of an increase in seasonal averages and climate extremes. Projections
This study aimed to evaluate the global, regional, and national mortality burden associated with non-optimal ambient temperatures. Non-optimal temperatures are associated with a substantial mortality burden, which varies spatiotemporally. The below
This paper assesses the long-term changes in mortalities due to extreme weather events in India. In the Indian subcontinent, the annual average extreme weather events (EWEs) are reported to be increasing during the last few decades. The impact of
