In conjunction with the DAMOCLES Final Conference (6.-8. September 2022) there will be a Call for Abstracts about "Perspectives and ways forward in Compound Event research".

DAMOCLES is a European COST Action (CA17109) that focuses on the understanding and modeling of compound
climate and weather events. Compound weather and climate events describe combinations of multiple climate
drivers and/or hazards that contribute to societal or environmental risk. During such events, multiple weather and climate drivers occur together and exceed the coping capacity of the underlying systems.

Submission deadline: 27 May 2022

In recent years, several countries have focused on the projected scale of health impacts caused by climate change. The magnitude of health impacts and outcomes of climate change indicate a function of several interactions that occur during exposure to climate change-related variations in different weather patterns. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), the intensity and frequency of extreme events, such as storms, floods, droughts, and wildfires, are changing due to weather variability. These changes have an adverse impact on human health and wellbeing, health systems, and exacerbate health inequities that already exist within vulnerable populations.

This Special Issue aims to provide insight into innovative knowledge and tools on climate-related health risks by identifying the factors inherent to climate vulnerability, thereby considering the impact of climate change on human health, which entails the identification of vulnerable populations and communities with associated vulnerabilities.

Submission deadline: 18.06.2022
