Solution Information

Solution Title

Implementation of a forecAsting System for urban heaT Island effect for the development of urban ada

Solution Title (in English)


Climate change adaptation, heat island effect


Europe, urban areas


The LIFE ASTI project aims to design, implement, pilot and validate a set of UHI forecasting systems in Thessaloniki and Rome based on state-of-the-art numerical models. It will also establish dissemination tools and allow end-users open access to UHI-related information using ICT applications. Furthermore, the project will assess the impact of future climate change scenarios on UHI for the two cities and evaluate the impact of promoting green activities (e.g. green roofs and ventilation areas) in urban areas on combating this effect. It will develop modelling systems for the two cities, along with good practice guides and efficient strategic plans for mitigating future urban heat island (UHI) effects. These can be adjusted for other EU urban areas that face the same adverse UHI effects. Finally, the project aims to raise awareness and encourage authorities to apply such urban adaptation strategies and mitigation initiatives. It will organise events to promote, replicate and transfer the designed modelling systems and the best urban adaptation strategies to other European cities that face the same climate issues arising from the UHI effect.
