Bei Überschwemmungen soll das LIFE-Programm der EU helfen
In Europa nehmen die Überschwemmungen aufgrund des Klimawandels zu. Diese extremen Wetterereignisse führen häufig zu menschlichen Tragödien, zum Verlust von Menschenleben und zu wirtschaftlichen Verlusten. Die Umwelt leidet auch unter der Zerstörung wildlebender Lebensräume und der Verschmutzung von Wasserkörpern. Mehrere LIFE-Projekte arbeiten intensiv daran, die Situation zu entschärfen.

Wissenschaftliche Stellungnahme – Anpassung des Klimawandels an die gesundheitlichen Auswirkungen in Europa
In diesem im Juni 2020 veröffentlichten wissenschaftlichen Gutachten wird untersucht, welche Anpassungsmaßnahmen den europäischen Gesundheitssektor im Hinblick auf die Auswirkungen des Klimawandels stärken könnten. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf gefährdeten Gruppen, Regionen und der städtischen Umwelt sowie auf den Auswirkungen vektorübertragener Krankheiten, Hitze- und Hitzewellen.

Sommer in der Stadt: grüne Infrastruktur, um städtische Gebiete kühl zu halten
Die letzten fünf Jahre waren die ärmsten Rekordzahlen. Die Temperaturaufzeichnungen wurden in Städten in Tschechien, Spanien, Deutschland, Frankreich und Polen gebrochen. Unterdessen wurden in Belgien, Italien und der Schweiz aufgrund der intensiven Erwärmung Warnhinweise zur öffentlichen Gesundheit ausgegeben. Das Team im Rahmen des Projekts LIFE Tree Check hat mehrere Lösungen erarbeitet, die Städten in ganz Mitteleuropa helfen können, die Hitze zu bewältigen.

Tackling pollution and climate change in Europe will improve health and well-being
Air and noise pollution, the impacts of climate change such as heatwaves, and exposure to dangerous chemicals cause ill health in Europe and contribute to 13 % of deaths. An integrated approach to environment and health policies is needed to tackle environmental risks, protect the most vulnerable and fully realise the benefits that nature offers in support of health and well-being, according to the EEA.

Evaluation of the socio-economic impact of climate change in Belgium
According to this report of the National Climate Commission, climate change in Belgium will mainly be felt through heat waves, floods and droughts. Warmer and more humid summers, and milder and humid winters are becoming normal. These impacts will affect a large number of sectors, resulting in major costs but also benefits, with costs dominating strongly. Well-considered and fair adaptation measures are required.

European Climate and Health Observatory launched and joint Lancet Countdown-EEA Briefing published
The European Climate and Health Observatory is a partnership of the European Commission, the EEA and several other European and international organizations. This Observatory provides access to a wide range of resources on climate change and health, and aims to strengthen the health component in adaptation strategies and activities as well as the climate adaptation component in health policies. The Observatory was launched on 4 March 2021 in a virtual launch event together with its partner organisations and users. In connection with the launch of the Observatory, the Lancet Countdown and the EEA publish a joint briefing ’Responding to the health risks of climate change in Europe’. This Briefing highlights key health impacts from climate change as well as opportunities to reduce climate-related health risks through adaptation policies aligned with mitigation actions.

Warming Europe invites dangerous mosquitos
As Europe warms up, it will become a more suitable home for one of the world’s most potent virus spreaders – the Asian tiger mosquito. This creature thrives at summer temperatures of 20–25°C, and survives the winter if January temperatures stay above 3°C. So as the world heats up, we will see them travelling north and south to find more comfortable conditions.
