Resilience of outdoor spaces in an era of climate change: The problem of developing countries

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper recommends expanding research on the interrelations between climate change, cities, culture and the way climate change influences participants' thermal, emotional and perceptual well-being in public spaces as a key step in developing contextual design codes for outdoor public spaces. Proposing a general framework to address climate challenges in developing countries, the paper advocates focusing on the developing world, where outdoor spaces are extremely vulnerable and available studies are scarce.
