Livable and Resilient City

Opportunities to reduce the urban heat island effect by nature based solutions

The problem of city overheating is not new. Although it affects everybody living there, the solution has not yet received sufficient attention. Why does overheating occur? How can we cool the city?

The manual is divided into four chapters, which can be read separately and the information can be searched as needed. The first chapter presents the causes and consequences of overheating in the city, while the second chapter summarises possible cooling methods. The third chapter gives specific suggestions on what can be done. The fourth chapter summarizes ways that can be done, i.e., procedural issues.

The booklet is free to download after filling in a questionnaire to help us find out who is interested in the issue.
