  • Africa is considered to be the most vulnerable continent to climate change, due to the high exposure and low adaptive capacity. It is estimated that extreme temperature events (ETEs) affected 27 million people across Africa, which resulted in 270 fatalities, and 260 injuries (EM-DAT CRED, 2020). This master class focused on the existing heat wave scenario in South Africa, adaptation measures, and mitigation policies to cope with heat waves.
