Abstract:
Climate is an important factor for regional planners whenever they make decisions that concern the future shape and functions of a city. The purpose of this study is to analyze the effects of green infrastructure as a strategy to alleviate urban heat island effect in coastal cities. Taking Singapore as an example, the tropical climate of this country makes it hot and humid throughout the year. Therefore, the main climate issue of Singapore is the urban heat island effect, which raises temperatures in urban areas as opposed to surrounding rural ones. Regional planning authorities in Singapore have taken this climate factor into consideration making this city a great example for my topic.
