Upper East Region of Ghana. This region is known to be the most vulnerable to climate change in the country. However, no study has found any local variations as the study tended to be defined by administrative boundaries. To assess rice production vulnerability to biophysical aspects of climate change (e.g., rainfall, temperature), we applied a


Climate-based Daylight Metrics Applied for Sustainable and High-quality Design Strategy of Office Spaces

Daylight using in office space not only has the energy-saving potential, but also achieve visual requirements and improve work efficiency. In the past, “Daylight factor (DF)” has always been the mainstream of building daylight specifications. However, “static” Daylight factor cannot fully reflect the change of time, nor the relationship between building orientation and external shading.
