Abstract

The problem of housing and the provision of housing requirements is one of the major problems in the civilized world today, which requires deep planning and implementation policies at various stages, especially in developing countries and for low-income community groups. And one of the approved housing policies in many countries of the world is the prefabricated method, which provides many advantages that contribute to the development of society and the fulfillment of its housing needs such as providing job opportunities through the need for employment at the levels of craftsmanship and quantity as well as provides a field to support the local economy by supporting the local product Of building materials, equipment and accessories of additives, which contribute to the operation of local government and private laboratories supported by the state as the ready-to-build method is an economic and rapid means that provides production and construction of housing units in large numbers that meet the continuous need for several years. The research provides information from a survey prepared by the Housing Corporation in 2000. Survey points indicate that housing shortages were required at that time to implement approximately 135,000 apartments annually, in both sectors: urban and rural, for a period of 20 years.

The role of urban green areas to adapt climate change impacts has been emphasized globally as urbanization is a very common fact around the world. This issue has been addressed by the sustainable development goals, several studies also underlined that sustainable urban planning is a crucial issue to enable more livable cities. The most natural and sustainable solution is to benefit green spaces with specific landscape design approaches including xeriscape. In this study we focus on roadside green spaces in an industrialized city. Traffic islands have been assessed based on the share of hardscape and green parts together with plant species and their irrigation specifications. The irrigation requirements have been analyzed by using a potential evapotranspiration method which is Blaney Criddle equation. The need for irrigation and the influence of the roadside green spaces as an adaptation tool emerge as a controversial situation in case of low water resources. We analyzed water needs of current plantation and irrigation systems and came out with a conclusion that xeriscape practices like mulching, use of xeric plants and grey water has a good potential to optimize water usage, mitigate urban heat island effect and support adaptation to the climate change.

This research investigates the socio-spatial causes and consequences of tactical urbanism practices in Baghdad. It attempts to identify the main creators of these practices and their motivations. It recognizes five common practices of tactical urbanism in Baghdad, public art, pop-up rest areas, pavement plazas, guerrilla gardening, and open streets. This research argues that the applications of tactical urbanism in Baghdad could revive urban spaces and positively impact local communities, and that it could have various implications for urban policies. This article examines evidence from fieldwork and interviews with individuals involved in tactical urbanism projects. It also employs a questionnaire which addresses the opinions of individuals in the profession of architecture and urban design regarding the impact of tactical urbanism.
