The paper describes the experimental results of a Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) implementation that tests the holistic approach for an integrated urban water management system as an adaptation measure to cope with climate change in socio-environmental vulnerability conditions. The work is based on a socio-technical perspective for the development of micro-scale water sensitive measures in East Naples (Southern Italy), a deprived multi-risk area where emerging socio-ecological criticalities are calling to formulate adaptive strategies that consider local community claims and embed bottom-up processes. Community-based design actions are proved to be effective for the co-production of resilience practices, including the social capital in climate-resilient transition of the built environment.
