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

Description:

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.
  • The third considers the implications of these varied health impacts for occupational health and work productivity.
