Chapter 6: Green New Urbanism
There is a lack of empirical assessment of the relationship between New Urbanist design and ecosystem services, climate adaptation planning, and other environmental outcomes. Research on microclimate regulation and New Urbanism is sparse. Especially needed are studies that evaluate the role of design in adapting to hotter urban environments. Built examples of New Urbanism can be used as urban field stations, where hypotheses about the relationship between design and sustainability can be tested. Creating a publicly available and spatially explicit New Urbanist project database would greatly enhance new empirical opportunities.
