Abstract

The paper focuses on adaptation to climate change and proposed, for the city of Parma, a risk map induced by heat islands on sensitive people, as a tool to support planning decisions for urban regeneration interventions. The study, has confirmed the connection between the temperature change and land use and found that, when it crosses the 80% threshold, the heating rate increases considerably. One of the most successful solutions is the equipment of vegetation increase. Continuity of pedestrian and cycle routes, and their overlap with ecological corridors, could be a solution to increase of green infrastructure, as they allow at the same time re-sewing between rural and urban areas at different scales. Strategies and processing practices recommended for the heat island mitigation can have positive effects on several components of the territorial and urban system. Starting from environmental criticalities, the recommendations for action can have positively impact on different sectors.
