European schools and hospitals at risk from heat waves and floods: How to protect vulnerable groups from climate change?

Climate change affects all Europeans, but vulnerable groups, such as the elderly, children, low-income groups and those with health problems or disabilities, are hit hardest. A European Environment Agency (EEA) briefing looks at these inequalities and how to address them through equitable climate change adaptation.

The briefing can be found on the EEA website.

The exposure analysis is summarised on the Climate and Health Observatory, including a link to the map viewer.
