Climate Change and Health: Adapting to Mental, Physical and Societal Challenges

The research consortium CHAMPS studies the potential impacts of climate change on health, with a focus on three interrelated topics: The first relates to mental health impacts associated with seasonal fluctuationsin the intensity of daylight and modifying weather effects such as cloudiness andsnow cover. The second concerns health impacts of thermal stress, both heat and cold,and the influence of social vulnerability and exposure of the population on the severity of impacts

Badalona Integrated Early Warning System for multi-hazard and risk management to ensure urban climate change adaptation

LIFE BAETULO is a pilot project where a novel technology, an Integrated (and multi-hazard) Early Warning System, is applied for the first time in a city, in this case in Badalona (Spain), with the objective of reducing the exposure and vulnerability of citizens and other urban assets to climate-related hazards by providing anticipated information and alarms that allows taking preventive and proactive actions to minimize direct and indirect impacts and damages derived from climate change. The Integrated Early Warning System implemented through LIFE BAETULO project consists of 4 main blocks: Data gathering: continuous monitoring to predict and identify climate derived hazardous events

Quality Criteria for Health National Adaptation Plans

A Health National Adaptation Plan (HNAP) is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a plan developed by a country’s Ministry of Health as part of the NAP process. HNAP development is critical for: ensuring prioritization of action to address the health impacts of climate change at all levels of planning; linking the health sector to national and international climate change agendas, including an increased emphasis on health cobenefits of mitigation and adaptation actions in other sectors; promoting and facilitating coordinated and inclusive climate change and health planning among health stakeholders at different levels of government and across health- determining sectors; and enhancing health sector access to climate funding

Building with Nature

The most serious threat facing the North Sea Region is climate change, increasing flood and coastal erosion risk from storm surges in coastal and estuarine areas and heavy rain causing flooding of rivers and lakes inland. Building with Nature is an emerging complementary concept where natural processes help to keep us safe against coastal erosion and flooding

Development of sustainable and climate resilient urban storm water management systems for Nordic municipalities

The main objective of the LIFE UrbanStorm project is to increase the climate resilience of Estonian municipalities, especially their ability to manage flash flooding caused by heavy rainfall. The project will facilitate the development and implementation of integrated approaches for climate change adaptation strategies and action plans, at  local, regional and national levels, prioritising, where appropriate, ecosystem-based approaches

Health

Both direct and indirect effects on human, plant and animal health are expected from climate change. Direct effects results from changes in the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events like heatwaves and floods.

Adapting overhead lines in response to increasing temperatures in UK

Several energy transmission and distribution companies in the UK have begun to take the impact of increasing temperatures into consideration for the long-design of electricity distribution infrastructure. Rising temperatures can impact power lines by reducing their thermal rating (i

Safeguarding the Saimaa Ringed Seal

The Saimaa ringed seal is an extremely endangered seal species only found in Saimaa, a large lake complex in eastern Finland. There are slightly over 300 individuals currently in the wild

Ocean Risk and the Insurance Industry

A diverse array of ocean-related phenomena occur today and more are expected to emerge in the future as ocean risk evolves in response to the observed and accelerating warming, acidification, oxygen depletion and other man-made threats to the ocean. This report aims to raise awareness of potential insurance industry-related impacts of these interconnected threats and the important role the industry can play in managing emerging ocean risks, seizing new opportunities, and helping to make the industry, the global economy, and society more resilient and responsive to the consequences of a rapidly changing ocean

Adaptation in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany

The website of the  Ministry for Climate Protection, Environment, Agriculture, Nature Conservation and Consumer Protection of the German State of North Rhine-Westphalia provides information about regional adaptation policies. The adaptation strategy is presented as well as a number of projects that were initiated by the ministry

Open data infrastructure for city resilience: a roadmap, showcase and guide

Open Data Infrastructure for City Resilience has been developed as a resource for city officials with responsibilities that include urban planning, risk reduction, resilience building and civil contingency. It has been designed, therefore, to help cities to integrate open data policies and infrastructure into their wider city data strategies and the development of their resilience action plans

Quick Risk Estimation (QRE)

The Quick Risk Estimation (QRE) tool has been designed for the purposes of identifying and understanding current and future risks / stress / shocks and exposure threats to both human and physical assets. The QRE Tool is not a full scale risk assessment, rather a multi-stakeholder engagement process to establish a common understanding

Room for the River Regge, Netherlands - restoring the river dynamics

Historically, the Regge was a free-flowing shallow lowland river which meandered through a landscape containing marshes, wet meadows and sandy levees. To facilitate shipping, from 1848 onwards the river was straightened by cutting off meanders, and the river channel was deepened and widened

Adapting agriculture to wetter and drier climates: the Tullstorp stream Project (Sweden)

The poor ecological state of the Tullstorp stream (southern Sweden) and the recently experienced adverse weather events, with extremely wet and dry periods and related impacts for the agriculture sector, led the Economic Association of landowners of the Tullstorp river basin to take action. A first restoration project started in 2009 with the main goal to improve the ecological status of the stream, solve flooding problems and facilitate the overall management of the water resource

COP24 Special Report: Health & Climate Change

This report is a contribution from the public health community to support the negotiations of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). It was written at the request of the President of the 23rd Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC (COP23), Prime Minister Bainimarama of Fiji, to the World Health Organization (WHO) to prepare a report on health and climate change, to be delivered at COP24.
