  • Description:
    "The workshop, Developing an Integrated Heat Health Information System for Long-Term Resilience to Climate and Weather Extremes in the El Paso-Juárez-Las Cruces Region, was held in El Paso, Texas, on July 13, 2016. Sponsored by a collaborative of universities and local and federal agencies, the workshop brought together individuals in government, practitioner, and academic communities from Mexico and the United States to discuss the intersection of the region{19}s climate and weather with factors affecting public health risks related to extreme heat. The region is home to approximately 2.4 million people, most of whom are living in or near the urban centers of Ciudad Juárez (Chihuahua), El Paso, and Las Cruces (New Mexico). These cities share characteristics, such as a high proportion of residents of Hispanic origin, median income below the U.S. national average, and a range of climate related environmental issues that include drought, flooding, air pollution, dust storms, and frequent occurrences of extremely high temperatures during the late spring and early summer. With hotter temperatures and more frequent and persistent heat waves projected for the El Paso- Juárez-Las Cruces region, it is critical to develop more robust systems of institutions, social learning, and partnerships to understand risks and strengthen public health resilience"--Executive summary.
