This program is hosted by our partner, Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP), who has extended an invitation to PNY members.

Extreme heat is the number one weather-related killer in North America and many other parts of the world. It kills more people in the U.S. than hurricanes, tornadoes and floods combined. Human-caused climate change has been contributing to global warming and leading to record-setting temperatures in countries worldwide as the planet continues to get hotter. This will only worsen, and like many other hazards, people with pre-existing vulnerabilities are at increased risk of more harm from extreme heat.

What will you learn?

This webinar will explore how funders can address the growing heat crisis. At the end of this webinar, donors will:

  • Have a greater understanding of the links between climate change and heat.
  • Learn how philanthropy can help address heat’s impacts globally.
  • Build awareness of heat’s inequitable impacts.

Who should attend?

While primarily aimed at funders, it may also be of interest to emergency managers, academics, disaster responders and NGO staff interested in or working on disasters and other crises.
