Implications for urban planning, architecture and urban resilience

Residential area with extensive green roof.

Urban Systems research provides ample information about the connection between urban areas and urban climate. These results need to be made available to urban planners, local decision makers and architects in order to put possible mitigation measures such as widespread use of (intensive) green roofs into practice.

The existing collaboration with local decision makers and city planners is the basis for the successful application of research performed in Urban Systems.
