Overview

Europe emerges as an especially sensitive area to climate change with more frequent, longer and harsher summer heat waves. Temperature-Related Mortality (TRM) can be largely avoided if informed decisions are made prior to extreme climate events to protect vulnerable populations.

Co-design and co-production

This case study aims to develop in collaboration with end-users a prototype forecast scheme of TRM for a very large ensemble of regions in Europe.
