New dataset on climate extreme indices and heat stress indicators

The dataset provides climate extreme indices related to temperature and precipitation as well as selected heat stress indicators derived from global climate projections.

Systemic perspective needed for successful climate risk assessments and adaptation strategies

The complex and systemic risks the world is facing today can have cascading impacts across systems and sectors and require systems thinking and transdisciplinary approaches, according to a new Briefing Note on Systemic Risk.

EXtremeClimTwin: Building capacity on climate extremes through cooperation

Increasing heat extremes, reduced summer precipitation and higher rainfall intensities are some of the climate change impacts facing the Western Balkans. To strengthen local researchers’ ability to understand the current and coming changes in climate extremes, CICERO researchers are involved in an EU funded capacity building project with the University of Novi Sad in Serbia.

EXHAUSTION

Increasing temperatures and heat waves due to climate change, combined with air pollution, constitute major health risks, and could cause an increase in cardiovascular and respiratory diseases across Europe. EXHAUSTION (Exposure to heat and air pollution in Europe – cardiopulmonary impacts and benefits of mitigation and adaptation) aims to quantify the changes in cardiopulmonary mortality and morbidity due to extreme heat and air pollution (including from wildfires) under selected climate scenarios.

ENBEL: Connecting health and climate change research

Climate change is according to the WHO the greatest threat to human health in the 21st century. By bringing together leaders in climate change and health research the CICERO-coordinated Horizon 2020 project ENBEL will contribute with knowledge and policy advice on climate change and health links.
