Climate change and adaptation strategies for human health in europe (CCASHH)

Objective

Irrespective of any actions that may soon be taken to reduce or halt climate change, human populations will be exposed to some degree of climate change over the coming decades. There is therefore a need to consider how to enhance the adaptation possibilities of communities to climate-related impacts on human health. A conceptual framework, vulnerability assessments, policy analysis, economic analysis and Integrated Assessment Models, will be used to identify and evaluate adaptation possibilities for human health with regard to thermal stresses, extreme weather events, Vector-borne diseases and food and waterborne diseases. The deliverables are various from guidelines on cost effective adaptation strategies to tools for environmental health adaptation management.
