Heatwaves present huge risks to human health, infrastructure and the economy and are most acutely experienced in cities as a result of the Urban Heat Island effect (UHI). During this webinar we will share research findings and insights into the potential of nature-based solutions, in particular urban trees, to improve local microclimates and thermal comfort levels in both arid and temperate environments, using the UAE and UK as examples.
