2022 IAUC Keynote #2: Heat health in the built environment
Dr Clare Heaviside (University College London, United Kingdom)
Prof. Jason Lee (National University of Singapore, Singapore)
A/Prof Fredrik Lindberg (University of Gothenburg, Sweden)
Extreme temperatures cause more deaths than any other extreme weather event. The excess heat in cities, as well as the larger concentration of people and economic activities, make the urban population particularly vulnerable to health risks due to heat. This keynote panel will engage experts in heat health analyses and discuss future pathways for adaptation and mitigation of this grave concern.
