Climate change adaptation and carbon emissions in green urban spaces: Case study of Adelaide

Concentrations of building mass and insufficient greenery in cities are identified to contribute significantly to extended heat stress in the built environment, commonly known as the urban heat island (UHI) effect. This paper presents a scenario-based modelling built on climate change projections and potential alterations of urban greenery in 2030 and 2090 in Adelaide, South Australia…
