I cannot add anything to John's excellent response.

When considering thermal comfort, passive design, building maintenance and material selection , we often refer to the Building Issues report from Lund, specifically:

http://www.sheltercentre.org/library/Climatic+Design+Buildings+using+Passive +Techniques

More generally from Lund http://www2.hdm.lth.se/bi/report/frame.htm, or:

http://www.sheltercentre.org/organisation/lunduni

Lastly, our overview training on climatic design introduces the concepts and is consistent with the training that we developed both for the IASC ESC and the IFRC:
