The objectives of Charisma

The project has three main objectives:

  • Facilitate and support the drawing up of strategies and action plans for climate adaptation with focus on heat and health related issues by giving access to quantitative information for effective risk management
  • Deliver the necessary spatial data for local urban administrations to carry out impact analysis for the development of climate adaptation plans for heat stress management and effectively combatting vector-borne diseases (spatial planning, green space management, health and emergency services, social services)
  • Train the local vector-borne disease fighting organisations and offer a tool box for:
    • the design of sampling strategies
    • the analysis of spatial data
    • the implementation of spatial models
