Abstract

Global warming is changing the urban climate and influencing human society. A report from Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI, 2013), showed that the temperature will rise globally by 1,0 -2,3°C in 2050 and 1,3- 3,7°C in 2085. To strategically deal with this issue, this project aims at planning the future city to adapt changing climate. Furthermore, there are four scenarios (GL, GH, WL, and WH) are used as a reference to investigate the relation of land use planning and urban climate (KNMI, 2014), which are based on global airflow and temperature changes. To extend this issue, this research identifies the role of the urban climate to urban planning. Analysis of variance indicates statistical effects of different categories of land-use type to neighboring areas, these effects reflect on temperature difference to the central area with the study region. The impact ratio to temperature in central area is thoroughly researched in different neighboring land-use types and distance. In this research, the geospatial database has linked the urban database with the urban climate model. For this study, Rotterdam is used as a case study because it is a delta city, and more than half of the habitants are vulnerable to climate change (City of Rotterdam, 2013). The selected area in the city of Rotterdam, the Netherlands is used as a case study. Finally, a spatial model of interaction between land-use planning and urban climate is presented, which provides a hypothetical guideline for sustainable city.
