An urban heat island (UHI) effect is a phenomenon that occurs when urban areas experience higher temperature than their surrounding rural areas. This contributes to global warming, risk of heat-related mortalities and unpredictable thermal conditions. Therefore, gaining insights into the knowledge of resilience and adaptation against adverse urban...

While government agencies have a role to play in helping parents, carers and children manage risk, this role is often enacted through risk avoidance strategies aimed at the worst-case scenario. This r...
