How are people and societies impacted by heat?

With global warming, we are experiencing more frequent and intense heat. Increasing temperatures impact both people and societies with economic and social consequences. Cities are hotspots for heat exposure. Sectors such as agriculture, energy and health are affected. There is a need to better understand the effects when several impacts occur at the same time, for example heatwaves and droughts. Exposure to heat and air pollution at the same time amplifies the health risks. But there are inequalities in the exposure to heat and some people are more vulnerable. Our researchers shed insights on this with posters and informal Q&A sessions.

Kulturhuset i Oslo - Biblioteket



Researchers from CICERO’s climate impacts group will showcase research findings on different aspects impacts of heat and highlight where more research is needed.  The researchers will present their insights using posters and you can walk around the room and talk to the researchers directly and informally.

This event will not be streamed.
