An understanding of the relation between heat stress zones and urban elements in order to guide future planning processes that can be heat resilient shall be explored.
The health impacts of heat are an emerging global environmental health concern. Climate Change is expected to increase the intensity and frequency of periods of extremely hot weather with significant effects on human health.
Large Southern cities, where concentration of poor people within certain pockets is high, are having higher instances of heat strokes and deaths In India, in between the year of 2012 and 2018 due to heat stress in urban areas. Exposure and sensitivity to hazards related to climate increase, when there are social inequalities. While it takes immense efforts to ease out socioeconomic inequalities, Hence, this study helps in bringing the thoughtful spatial planning process, iffocused and evolve, informed processes that are adaptive to climate change.
