Contribution to the care of a potential risk: heat waves

Project background

In recent decades, the number and the impact of heat waves throughout the Mediterranean region have increased. In order to develop mitigation measures to limit the harmful consequences of these heat waves, the project aims to create a database (temperature analysis, duration, frequency, impact, etc.), in order to support, (via regular monitoring and centralisation of historical data), the management of strategies and adaptation to adverse conditions.

Most significant achievements

Centre for Scientific and Technical Research on Arid Regions Omar El Bernaoui - Algeria :
The two year project has been dedicated to the help mitigate the harmful consequences of heat waves. In terms of scientific research, we have collected temperatures over the last 50 years in Algeria, which will allow us in the future to develop an effective heat-warning system. In addition to this, we organised a workshop on Heat Risk Management in Algeria in November 2015.

Deliverables year 2

  • Collection of temperature data concerning Algeria over the last 50 years in arid environment with a view to setting up a database and processing historical data for arid environments. In a long term perspective, the development of a heat-warning system, a measurement and a management system.

  • Creation of a database concerning participating countries
