The project will build a strategic, multi-stakeholder platform which will include all those involved in creating and providing healthy, climate-resilient care settings. The project will generate impact along three main pathways:
Building construction practitioners responsible for the design and delivery of healthy care homes will be provided with improved climate change adaptation design and decision making tools. This will enable the development of best practice guidance provided by professional organisations and associations.
Policymakers will be provided with evidence-based recommendations to help revise regulations and policies relating to thermal comfort and energy efficiency in care settings.
Care home managers, frontline staff and residents will be provided with best practice guidelines for the best operation of care environments in a warming climate.
