Understanding human physiology in order to mitigate climate change

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


• Climate change means people will be working and living in more extreme conditions
• In high-income countries, people spend most of their time indoors and have lost their thermal resilience
• An understanding of human physiology enables us to characterise the impact of climate change on human health and productivity, and design environments that help maintain both
• By employing insights into human physiology, it is possible to maintain comfort, health and productivity with less energy consumption and carbon emissions
• A priority is to educate about climate change and thereby promote behavioural change
