Exposure to heat and air pollution in EUrope – cardiopulmonary impacts and benefits of mitigation and adaptation

Project description

How extreme heat and air pollution hurt our heart and lungs

Accelerated warming increases the likelihood of heat waves and wildfires. Both are deadly. While extreme heat increases death and disease rates from cardiopulmonary disease (CPD), wildfires cause severe air pollution. Based on the most updated and advanced climate modelling efforts, the EU-funded EXHAUSTION project will develop exposure projections. It will draw on a time-series database in a multi-country observational study and rich cohort data bases to investigate the relation between heat, air pollution and CPD. The project will identify how a range of vulnerability factors may affect the probabilities for CPD arising from extreme heat and wildfires, and develop advanced adaptation strategies. The consequences of the CPD burden for the European economies and the benefits of adaptation will be estimated.
