The Build4People team is very happy about the publication of a video clip documenting the Build4People Urban Climate Conference 2023 at Sunway Hotel, Phnom Penh on 24 February 2023.
The rationale behind this event is that global climate change will increase heat and flooding problems in cities. Therefore, it is important to understand urban climate and its application in urban planning and building design.
For Phnom Penh an urban climatic map has been developed by INKEK together with its research partners at RUPP. During the Build4People Urban Climate Conference the calculation behind the Phnom Penh urban climate map got explained and its evaluation by measurements.
Moreover, discussions took place how the Phnom Penh Urban Climate Map can be implemented within the Cambodian planning system.
This was the first time in Cambodia, that issues of urban climate were discussed by including a wide range of stakeholders from academia, the local and national government, the corporate sector and from civil society organizations.
Our special thanks go to Prof Dr Tep Makathy, General Director of the Cambodian Institute of Urban Studies (CIUS) and to the members of the Build4People Work Package “Urban Climate” from INKEK who enthusiastically prepared and managed this meaningful event.
