Tool can assess health impacts of climate change for future or past scenarios
The tool mainly targets the local level, while the population considered should be determined by the intended purpose of the analysis. The tool can be applied both prospectively and retrospectively, while the timeframe of the economic evaluation will be largely determined by that of the underlying health impact assessment. The tool is available for download here.
More information can be found in the report "Assessment tool to estimate the economic costs of health impacts of climate change at the local level".
The 2nd RAMSES Policy brief summarises the key findings of the project, highlights their implications for adaptation strategies and measures, and points to research that could facilitate enhanced adaptation decision-making
