PP1: Identification and assessment of coping measures for dealing with extreme weather events

This programme package has led to the identification and assessment of coping methods for dealing with extreme weather events.

Methods adopted have included, for example, green space or street spraying to cope with heatwaves, or flood-proof construction to protect property and infrastructure, to more simple solutions such as fan-evaporation cooling for individual comfort. A range of coping methods will be identified and evaluated for current and future extreme weather.

The output from this programme package provides technical information on coping methods which is essential for research into the barriers and drivers of their uptake by individuals, SMEs and local community carried out by PP2.
