"This paper was prepared by Briony A. Norton, Stephen J. Livesley and Nicholas S.G. Williams from the Department of Resource Management and Geography at The University of Melbourne and Andrew M. Coutts from the School of Geography and Environmental Science at Monash University. ... A report for the Victorian Centre for Climate Change Adaptation Research (VCCCAR) under the project: Responding to the urban heat island: Optimising the implementation of green infrastructure" --page 2
Summary Higher temperatures in urban areas compared to rural areas are a problem for human health and wellbeing. The effects of already high urban temperatures will exacerbate the effects of climate change, which include increased frequency of heat wave events. This report used existing literature as well as new data from a component of the same project (Coutts and Harris (2012): A multi-scale assessment of urban heating in Melbourne during an extreme heat event and policy approaches for adaptation) to develop a systematic approach for urban land managers to optimise the selection and implementation of different UGI options.
