Le traitement des espaces urbains dans les villes au climat chaud et sec pour diminuer leurs problèmes climatiques. Étude de cas : la ville du Caire

Abstract : The rapid urbanization in big cities, such as Cairo, often has negative impacts on the environment, including changes in the urban microclimate. However, there is a lack of integration of climate knowledge in planning strategies, as well as there is no link between the microclimate, thermal comfort, design and planning regulations. Most urban models and theories in Egypt are imported from abroad. We face therefore a big challenge to manage the existing urban spaces to adapt to the hot climate. This study analyzes the effects of urban design and landscape elements on the thermal environment of urban spaces in the hot and dry city of Cairo. The thermal sensation of the users of two public squares in Cairo, and how they perceive the thermal environment in different places are studied by structured interviews. Non-participant observation of the behavior of the users, and a qualitative analysis of the thermal performance of the squares, were applied. The results affirm the importance of shade in the summer climate of hot and dry regions, as well as the important role of vegetation.
