The UHI Project is implemented through the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The main target of this transnational project is the development of mitigation, risk prevention and management strategies to counteract the urban heat island (UHI) phenomenon. Mitigation strategies consist in the adoption of urban and land planning models that prevent the establishment of UHI. On the other hand, adaptation strategies aim at reducing the impact of UHI related phenomena, such as summer bioclimatic discomfort.
