Impact Of Vegetated Infrastructure To Mitigate Urban Heat Island Effect In Bangladesh

Climate change has a strong negative impact on Bangladesh, though this country has an insignificant carbon footprint. With rapid urbanization, Dhaka City, the capital of Bangladesh, is progressively falling short of sustaining outdoor life due to urban heat island (UHI) effect, which is one of the most documented phenomena of urban climate change.

For this study, Purbachal, a developing residential area of Dhaka was selected and through ENVI-met software simulation, the impact of adding vegetated infrastructures on the outdoor air temperature and relative humidity was observed by adding vegetated infrastructures on three levels: at street level, on green roofs, and in green walls on the buildings. It analyzes which type of intervention can reduce the UHI effect and to what extent.
