No place for climate change

A transdisciplinary study on climate change adaptation of urban squares with contributions by IUP researchers has been published. A Heidelberg research team including members of the HydroTraP group at IUP and the TdLab Geography at the Institute of Geography has investigated the heat stress in selected urban squares in Heidelberg and identified adaptation measures that can be taken.

The study was part of the PhD-work of Dr. Kathrin Foshag, funded by the Heidelberg School of Education. The results of the study have now been published under the title “Viability of public spaces in cities under increasing heat: a transdisciplinary approach” in the journal “Sustainable Cities and Society”.
