Urban Climate Design

The aim of Urban Climate Design is to extend our knowledge of the effects of climate-adaptation measures and to stimulate the implementation of such measures in the design of public space. Anticipating on the effects of climate change, the research was guided by the question: Which urban design principles can be applied in specific Dutch neighbourhoods to respond to the effects of climate change, especially in terms of outdoor thermal comfort and water management? The three stages of the research are:

  • A literature review of existing knowledge on climate adaptation and knowledge gaps
  • Research into the specific field of urban climatology
  • Applied research on the broader field of urban planning
