Urbanisation can exacerbate heat exposure for the poor in urban core areas. Due to the urban heat island effect, cities and urban areas experience higher levels of heat exposure than surrounding rural areas. Similarly, urban microclimates have a role to play in creating higher urban temperatures in certain parts of given cities. In addition, indoor temperatures can differ greatly from outdoor temperatures depending upon various building types and materials and surrounding environments.
