Blue-Green Infrastructure for Heat Exposure Mitigation

Publication Date Jun 17, 2022

Abstract

Global and regional warming phenomena drive the effect of climate change on cities. Research on urban heat adaptation strategies has been growing, with many studies concentrating on blue and green infrastructure (BGI) as an alternative to grey infrastructure and to minimise the adverse effects of urban heat islands. Building upon investigating the case of Germany, this chapter presents mitigation strategies for Alexandria, Egypt that can reduce the temperature at the urban design level and identify urban heat island effects through BGI and their performance, as well as their importance in achieving sustainable urban development and low-temperature cities. The lessons learned show that BGI is a new approach to city planning that can minimise the impact of human development on functioning natural systems, the quality of life, and the economic consequences. A set of BGI guidelines for Alexandria on how to keep cities cool and improve the city's environment were agreed upon.
