Extreme heat has wide-ranging impacts on health, occupations, energy use, and the economy. Current and future conditions of extreme heat affect the livelihoods of communities and people globally, yet the impacts are unevenly distributed and novel strategies are needed to push beyond one-size-fits-all approaches to protect the most vulnerable in a sustainable way. In this second SSF Extreme Heat webinar of the summer, international experts will explore the understanding of urban and personal heat mitigation strategies to lessen impacts, providing global viewpoints and best-practices, with an emphasis on the use of new knowledge and preparations to reduce future life and economic losses. Join Panelists Ollie Jay, Shubhayu Saha, Arunima Malik and Moderator Jennifer Vanos for this timely session.
