Turning up the heat

Turning Up the Heat

Built Environment Track

In a time of increasingly frequent heat waves, it is imperative that communities understand what their needs are during heat waves and how they will meet those needs.

This session covered:
Design and retrofit strategies within an urban environment to mitigate extreme heat events
How to develop plans to identify and assist the most vulnerable populations to urban heat island impacts

Participants left with a greater understanding of how to address increasingly common and intense heat events, including keeping essential systems functioning and assisting the most vulnerable populations.

Moderator: Sara Hoverter, Senior Fellow at Harrison Institute for Public Law, Georgetown University Law Center
