Heat Action Platform

Organization: Arsht-Rock, EHRA

Year: 2022

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.

The platform was developed by the Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center and the Extreme Heat Resilience Alliance in collaboration with the UN Environment Programme, the Cool Coalition, RMI, the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, Mission Innovation and the World Economic Forum’s Global Commission on BiodiverCities by 2030.

The platform can support you to:

  1. Develop a heat action plan or similar planning/goal-setting initiative;
  2. Create an individual project or policy intervention with heat-risk reduction and preparedness goals;
  3. Embed heat-risk reduction and preparedness strategies into another plan; or
  4. Make the case for investments in community heat resilience.
