ACASIS : Alerte aux Canicules Au Sahel et à leurs Impacts sur la Santé

Organization: IRD

Year: 2014 -2018

The main objective of ACASIS is to set-up a pre-operational heat wave warning system over West Africa tailored to health risks of the population living in this region. This is a demonstration project focused on Senegal and Burkina Faso where national weather services have already started developing products dedicated to weather/climate and health relationships, and where several health and demographic observatories have been operating for up to several decades.
