Urban heat mapping: How is urban water contributing to community resilience?

Extreme heat impacts the health and wellbeing of the community, the environment, and economic performance. The accumulation of heat in urban areas can result in urban heat islands, which experience temperatures higher than the surrounding landscape. Under climate change, the impact of higher temperatures will become more evident in these areas. To better manage urban heat risks to their communities, the Resilient South project (Cities of Marion, Mitcham, Onkaparinga, Holdfast Bay and the State Government) and the AdaptWest project (Cities of Charles Sturt, Port Adelaide-Enfield, West Torrens) have been undertaking heat mapping and exploring opportunities to reduce heat through greening and water sensitive urban design. Our presenters will provide an overview of council achievements and the ways in which urban water is being used to manage urban heat.

Dr Tim Johnson, Sustainable Infrastructure Engineer – Natural Environments, City of Mitcham
Andrew King, Coordinator Engineering Services, City of West Torrens
