Year 2014

The report provides a comprehensive overview of the global knowledge base on Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect to identify critical impact parameters and the extent of their impacts. It also reviews various policy initiatives being implemented internationally to assess the policy response for mitigating UHI effect. Based on this analysis, a descriptive model is developed mapping the interrelationships and impacts of urban development parameters on UHI effect to identify possible policy instruments for mitigation.

The research insights highlight the necessity for greater understanding of the magnitude of the urban heat island effect for development of appropriate mitigation and adaptation strategies.
