Originating Urban Climate Change Adaptation Planning Guidepost: Urban Landscape Sustainability Framework (ULSF), Quezon City, Philippines

The Quezon City (QC) in the Philippines is developing assertively and replacing vegetation by buildings,roads, gardens and parks, one of the effects of urbanization that exacerbates the formation of Urban heat Islands (UHI) and changes the microclimate, raising summer temperatures by up to 7oC and increasing
surface run-off into cities streams and rivers. To resolve these issues this study originated an Urban Climate Change (UCC) Adaptation Planning Guidepost so called Urban Landscape Sustainability Framework (ULSF) using QC as pilot. The QC was selected based on Logical Decisions for Window (LDW) software
results. Pertinent primary and secondary data was collected through internal, external, and online desk research methods and symposia to determine the institutional and personnel adaptive capacity in developing ULSF. Further, Suitability, Feasibility and Acceptability test was also conducted to check the workability of ULSF. The results revealed overall workability of the ULSF at highest rank of five (5). The Framework is flexible and could be tailor-fitted to other similar cities/municipalities to direct authorities on how the future city/municipality development should be designed using environmental friendly materials and energy
efficiency techniques, eventually promoting urban landscape sustainability and livable communities resilient to natural and climate related disaster impact.
