HI-AWARE Photo Story: Warm Nights in Faisalabad, Pakistan

A HI-AWARE team led by Alterra Wageningen University and Research centre is planning an elaborate indoor and outdoor heat measurement campaign across three cities in South Asia in 2016.

To better reflect heat exposure and adaptation measures on a local urban scale, Alterra has designed its own ‘mobile device’ for measuring outdoor heat. Furthermore, the campaign will explore what kinds of low-cost interventions can offer the best protection against heat to city dwellers in the region. Toward that end, Alterra, in collaboration with the Pakistan Agriculture Research Council (PARC) and the Government College University Faisalabad (GCUF), rolled out a trial phase of the campaign in Faisalabad, Pakistan, over a six-day period in July 2015.
