Abstract

The link between the urban contexts’ features and the Public Health outcomes, opens to a challenging scenario about the Urban Health issue. The research purpose is to describe a critical literature review, aimed to correlate the Public Health outcomes with the environmental risk factors, and for each of them, define Evidence-Based Design Strategies and Actions, capable to reduce those risk, improving the urban quality and attractiveness of places. Furthermore, the main focus of the paper is to underline the cities’ ability to be resilient to the on-going climate change phenomena, and the definition of the urban context’s features representing best practices i.e. of Nature-Based Solutions, to enhance the ecosystemic quality, and to reach healthiness, safety and security of the urban spaces.
