Providing an appropriate size and location of urban green space to anticipate impacts of climate change such as urban heat island and urban flooding is a challenging task since it needs to integrate various aspects such as environmental, socio-cultural, economic and political aspects. Urban green space allocation in Indonesia is regulated through the Indonesia Law on Spatial Planning that requires a minimum of 30% green space in each city in which 20% is provided by the government and 10% by the private sectors. Indonesian cities are now working to achieve the setup target, and it needs to be supported by sufficient information which show the relation and interdependent between urban green space, urban ecosystem services, and urban climates. All related information could be used by local governments to allocate urban green space based on local physical characteristics. This PhD research aims to identify potential urban green space locations and size by considering the relation between urban green space with urban ecosystem services and urban climates.
