About this event

Climate change presents a rapidly growing threat to the health of people living in the Global South, especially those in low-income urban settlements. The buildings people occupy can worsen the effects of extreme heat, but effective modifications to buildings could improve the indoor environment for occupants.

This seminar, hosted by the Building Energy Research Group, will explore ways to reduce extreme heat exposure in dwellings in Ghana, Tanzania, and Malawi. There will be five speakers, with a question and answer session afterwards.
