With the continuous rise of global urbanization, city planners and policymakers are increasingly concerned with urban heat islands (UHI), which are metropolitan areas that are significantly warmer than their surrounding rural areas. We address the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 11 “Sustainable Cities and Communities,” and we design and develop a decision support system (DSS), which will help city planners and policymakers to overcome economic barriers to reach environmental sustainability goals.
