Extreme heat is the number one weather-related killer in North America and many other parts of the world. It kills more people in the U.S. than hurricanes, tornadoes and floods combined.

Human-caused climate change has been contributing to global warming and leading to record-setting temperatures in countries worldwide as the planet continues to get hotter. This will only worsen, and like many other hazards, people with pre-existing vulnerabilities are at increased risk of more harm from extreme heat.

This webinar will explore how funders can address the growing heat crisis. At the end of this webinar, donors will:

  • Have a greater understanding of the links between climate change and heat.
  • Learn how philanthropy can help address heat’s impacts globally.
  • Build awareness of heat’s inequitable impacts.

While primarily aimed at funders, it may also interest emergency managers, government staff, academics, disaster responders and nongovernmental organization staff interested in or working on disasters and other crises.
