Urban heat islands are having a detrimental impact on the health and wellbeing of inhabitants in major cities. The impact of global warming is affecting all, but groups, including infants, the elderly and those with poor health, are vulnerable, and fatalities during hot weather are increasing. High temperatures adversely affect all ages, reducing the ability to function, live and work comfortably and effectively. The planning and design of buildings and their surrounding infrastructure, especially the green assets (trees, plants and vegetation), can reduce the impact of urban heat islands. The problem and challenges of urban heat island are described in this chapter as well as recent research which proposes to capture climate data and the impact of green infrastructure asset, thereby providing guidance for those designing and planning urban developments.
