Elizabeth Robinson is a member of the Proclias Working Group 3, Task Group 3.2, that addresses the impact of heat on labour and mortality, with a specific focus on adaptation.
The Working Group seeks to:
- Conduct long-term (mid-century), spatially explicit assessment of impacts (km-scale) of heat on labour and productivity per (sub-)sector, including the consideration of adaptation mechanisms.
- Coordinate and conduct local/regional/global ISIMIP3a type impact studies on labour and mortality, using detailed information on non-climatic drivers
- Conduct case studies using micro-surveys while ensuring regional representation
- Provide data on AC, green space etc. to be used in adaptation modelling for both labour and heat related mortality.
