The proMETEO Seville Project is an initiative of the Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center of the Atlantic Council, a Washington-based research center and non-profit organization that designs strategies to address the challenges facing the world’s population, including climate change and heat waves. Its goal is to reach 500 million people with heat resilience solutions by 2030.
The proMETEO project also has the collaboration of the Seville City Council, the Spanish Meteorological Agency, the University of Seville, the Pablo de Olavide University, the Carlos III Institute, the Spanish Climate Change Office and the Alliance for the Day After, so working with public administrations and the scientific and educational communities is imprinted in the DNA of the initiative.
Extreme Heat Resilience Alliance (EHRA)
The Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center of the Atlantic Council has created the Extreme Heat Resilience Alliance (EHRA) to seek solutions to the major challenge posed by one of the main consequences of climate change around the world. The EHRA initiative works hand-in-hand with experts from a wide variety of professional fields including climate, meteorology, human health, and social and behavioral sciences. They are joined by leaders from numerous countries to influence decision making to address the heat primarily in cities where the negative effects of high temperatures multiply and with a special focus on protecting the most vulnerable populations. Addressing solutions to the increasingly frequent obstacles posed by extreme heat requires global action in which all actors in a community are called upon to participate.
