HEAT

Description

Heatwaves are among the deadliest natural hazards facing humanity. The threat they pose will only become more serious and more widespread as the climate crisis continues. While the effects of heat are more readily seen in cities, the livelihoods and well-being of non-urban communities can also be severely disrupted during and after periods of unusually hot weather.

Resources developed by the red cross red crescent network helps communities prepare for heatwaves.  Check out some of these resources below and share your related content and stories with us at the bottom of the page.
