Understanding of the real impact of adaptation measures to rising temperatures
Thousands of Europeans die each year due to ambient temperatures. While the case, there is still little information on how climate change will affect the future of public health. Societies have turned to adaption strategies to tackle the impacts of future temperature rises in Europe. However, evidence of their effectiveness is lacking. The EU-funded EARLY-ADAPT project aims to analyse the drivers of recent trends in human health. The project's hypothesis is that societies are beginning to adapt to climate change, but the effectiveness of early adaptation is heterogeneous among and within European societies. The work of EARLY-ADAPT will help detect, comprehend and measure the inequalities in adaptation.
