Urban Heat Island (UHI) Effect
IMAGE
1

Definition: a metropolitan area that is significantly warmer than its surrounding rural areas due to the replacement of natural surfaces with man-made structures.

50% of the world population live in an urban area, and it will be expected to be 70% in 2030. To accommodate such mega-urbanization, more tall buildings will be erected for city densification which will result in the seriousness of the UHI effect.
