Biophilic Urbanism as an Approach towards Mitigating Urban Heat Island in Thiruvananthapuram City
Anjana J Nair
Abstract: A rising number of people are realizing how important everyday exposure to nature is for leading fulfilling lives. The study outlines major pathways through which biophilic urbanism improves climatic conditions. The urban heat island (UHI), which is defined by temperature differences between urban and rural regions, is a prime example of micro-climate changes brought on by urbanisation. The destruction of vegetation as a result of recent expansion has resulted in the loss of vegetation land cover. This study aims to create strategies and action plans by interrelating the parameters of biophilic urbanism and urban heat island for Thiruvananthapuram city.
