The project idea
Implementation of a forecAsting System for urban heaT Island effect for the development of urban adaptation strategies
Pilot UHI forecasting systems in two cities, a web-based open access portal & long-term adaptation tools and contribution to EU adaptation strategy
The project’s implementation period is 1st September 2018 – 31 August 2021.
The project LIFE ASTI will lead to a substantial contribution to the overall aim of the EU Adaptation Strategy by developing policies for a better adaptation to UHI impacts, especially during summer heat waves, reducing the heat wave risk in metropolitan areas by introducing heat prevention services, and better-implementing energy efficiency guidelines in European cities.
