Abstract/Summary This guide was developed through multi-disciplinary research. It identifies key steps in mitigating urban surface temperatures to minimise high daytime urban temperatures.Identify priority locations based on assessments of exposure and vulnerability. Maximise the effectiveness of existing GI by integrating water sensitive urban design. Identify priority streets for temperature reduction based on street orientation and height: width ratio, which determine the amount of sun exposure. Select appropriate GI for different environmental conditions A range of options are suggested for policies to leverage GI implementation at local, state and federal levels
