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". 

Project at a glance:

RAMSES is a European research project which aims to deliver much needed quantified evidence of the impacts of climate change and the costs and benefits of a wide range of adaptation measures, focusing on cities.

RAMSES will engage with stakeholders to ensure this information is policy relevant and ultimately enables the design and implementation of adaptation strategies in the EU and beyond.
