Abstract

The effects of climate change in cities are already visible with extreme events globally increasing in both frequency and intensity. It is essential to consider the impact of urban regeneration strategies on local microclimatic conditions in order to guide urban planning and design in a resilient key. The complex management of information required to define adequate intervention strategies at a local level is a growing challenge for public administrations. The paper presents the first results of the ongoing H2020 project CLARITY (2017-2020) aimed at developing climate services for the integration of adaptation measures in urban redevelopment actions focused on activities performed in partnership by the UNINA team and the City of Naples, one of the project’s case studies.
