heatwave-healthHeatwaves are among the most dangerous of natural hazards that have a significant impact on society. "Heatwaves and health", the new report launched by WHO and the World Meteorological Organization, reviews how heatwaves contribute to a rise in mortality and morbidity and strain resources such as water, power, and transport. The report considers who is at risk from heat and outlines steps that can be taken towards effective warning systems. https://www.who.int/globalchange/publications/heatwaves-health-guidance/en/
