The paper aims to contribute to increasing the level of knowledge about climate change and its impact on cities in western Romania. The existing legislative framework at European and national level on resilience and adaptation to climate change is presented. The necessary climatic information is identified in order to create a scenario regarding the thermal stress and the health risk of the inhabitants of Timişoara. The results are extrapolated to other cities in the west of the country. The data obtained from the use of climate models are processed in order to use them to establish the necessary adaptation measures in order to reduce the risk to the health of the population due to future thermal stress. The paper presents uncertainties and limitations, as well as conclusions and personal contributions.
