What is the Heat Action Platform?
The Heat Action Platform is a living, engagement-oriented tool for city officials, practitioners, and financial institutions to find guidance, both existing resources and tailor-made solutions, on reducing the human and economic impacts of extreme heat at the regional or municipal level.
The platform offers opportunities to engage with world-leading experts across a diversity of disciplines to plan, fund, implement, and measure heat resilience actions.
What are the goals of this platform?
Connect practitioners and community leaders with global experts to co-develop heat resilience solutions that meet local needs.
Identify environmental, economic and social benefits of different heat resilience interventions.
Support implementation of heat adaptation and mitigation resilience initiatives related to extreme heat and urban cooling.
