Indicators to assess the resilience of health and emergency planning in England (by HR Wallingford)

This report was commissioned from HR Wallingford by the Adaptation Sub-Committee (ASC). It provides supporting research for the ASC’s report: Managing climate risks to well-being and the economy: Adaptation Sub-Committee progress report.

The supporting research provides a list of 22 indicators to consider when analysing the projected impacts of climate change on health and emergency planning. When determining these 22 indicators, the report considered the following four sub-themes:

  • overheating,
  • emergency planning,
  • social equity, and
  • other climate-related risks to health.
