Climate change has been widely enclosed with the reason of the increase in the occurrence of natural hazards. A variety of initiatives were adopted under different names, including sustainable cities, climate-friendly development and low-carbon cities etc. However, most of the initiatives targeted global cities. Urban areas are the focus in terms of taking actions against global warming issues. This is due to the structural and environmental features of cities. They are populated, core of large amount of carbon emissions and biggest consumer of natural resources. They create their own microclimate, which contributes to the climate change in turn. Hence, today we intensely discuss the need of change of our cities and our societies. Masdar City, for example, was designed as the first fully sustainable urban area, which rejects fuel-based energy and adopts the electric-based. China, as another example, prompted the Sponge Cities action, as a method of urban water management to mitigate flooding primarily. Therefore, the disciplines such as architecture and urban planning are urged to conform with the expectations to mitigate the global warming initiatives. The paper will accordingly discuss the approaches of the models presented in the world and draw the fundamental actions that can be adopted in large urban areas in Turkey, primarily in Istanbul.</p> didem yilmaz Copyright (c)
