As part of the Global Heat Health Information Network (GHHIN)‘s virtual forum this summer, I organized a masterclass on urban planning and governance for heat-health for June 16, 2020. With Roop Singh moderating, myself, Sara Meerow, Dave Hondula, and Ryan Winkle presented on the current state and innovations in urban planning, design and governance for extreme heat with examples from our research and community projects.
The first two lectures by myself and Sara Meerow, PhD, include:
- An overview of our upcoming literature review, Planning for Extreme Heat: A Review,
- A preview of our recently completed survey of U.S. planners on extreme heat risk perceptions, heat information needed, and policy and design interventions,
- Examples of policies and design interventions from the Urban Land Institute’s Scorched: Extreme Heat and Real Estate report, and
- Information on our upcoming project to pilot the Plan Integration Resilience Scorecard for heat.
