How to build heatwave resilience – A study of European cities’ preparedness

Europe is the continent where warming is occurring most rapidly, with temperatures rising approximately twice as fast as the global average.

Heat-related concerns are often overlooked in cities’ climate plans, especially for vulnerable populations, a new Sweco study reveals. Sweco’s analysis of 24 European cities highlights a lack of detailed data and vulnerability mapping across European cities.

The results have been published in a new Urban Insight report together with lessons learned, and recommendations for policymakers and urban sustainability practitioners.
