public health adaptation strategies
  to extreme weather events

Susceptible Subgroups

An important contribution of PHASE project is the improvement of preparedness and response to extreme weather events especially in vulnerable subgroups of the population.

Vulnerability factors are identified from epidemiological literature and case studies carried out within PHASE and are specific for each extreme event.

Evidence-based adaptation tools developed within the project are tailored to vulnerable population subgroups (children, elderly, people with chronic disease and socially/economically disadvantaged individuals).
