  1. 1. An oasis for students : investigating the potential co-benefits of schoolyard redesign for climate adaptation

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/LUCSUS

    Författare :Alice Aimée Schneider; [2020]
    Nyckelord :sustainability science; urban heat island; schoolyard greening; education; youth participation; children; health; Social Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Due to climate change and the urban heat island effect, urban areas face increasing heat stress, a change that has severe consequences on human health. While the need for climate adaptation is pressing, the impact of climate adaptation projects on other sectors also needs to be carefully examined. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Growing food in vacant spaces: the challenge of including urban agriculture initiatives in urban planning. A comparative case-study analysis of Athens, Barcelona, Brussels, Detroit and Leipzig

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Internationella miljöinstitutet

    Författare :Louis Fontanot; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Agriculture and Food Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Conventional urban planning doesn’t fit anymore the complexity of new urban challenges (heat island effect, biodiversity loss, human health issues). Instead, alternative methods must coexist with existing strategies for municipalities to be more flexible to changes and stay innovative. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Exploring the Residents' Attitude towards Greening Buildings and their Willingness to take action: An Empirical Survey Study in Deutz, Cologne

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Tamina Burggraf; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Sustainable Development; Green Roofs; Vertical Greening Systems; Residents’ Engagement; Acceptance; Urban Climate Change Adaptation;

    Sammanfattning : In times that reveal the consequences of climate change, cities are using urban greening as a potential measure in their climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies. Greenery in the city regulates the climate and balances temperature extremes through evapotranspiration and air humidification, spending shade and increased air circulation. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Impact of Carbon Sinks on Urban Heat Island Effects : Assessment Using Satellite Data in Water Scarce Region of the Thesis

    Magister-uppsats, Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för byggnadsteknik, energisystem och miljövetenskap

    Författare :Nadine Macauley; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Urban Heat Island; Carbon Sinks; Qatar; Satellite Remote Sensing; Al Bayt Stadium; Energy Systems; Energy Use; Sustainability; LST; Hot Arid Climate;

    Sammanfattning : Urbanization modifies the thermal characteristics of the land and makes way for a succession of transformations in the urban environmental system. This phenomenon, known as Urban Heat Island (UHI), is characterized by elevated temperatures in urban areas that negatively impact on the quality of life and environment in urban areas including, increased emissions of Green House Gases (GHGs) and rising energy consumption.
