Nature-Based Solutions Modeling and Cost-Benefit Analysis to Face Climate Change Risks in an Urban Area: The Case of Turin (Italy)

  • 2023

L’aumento dell’urbanizzazione e le sfide del cambiamento climatico stanno creando pressioni ambientali, economiche e sociali significative nelle città europee, tra cui l’incremento del rischio di alluvioni e l’effetto isola di calore urbano (UHI). Le Soluzioni Basate sulla Natura (NBS) sono sempre più riconosciute come strategie per fornire molteplici servizi ecosistemici, mitigare i rischi esistenti e rendere le città più resilienti e vivibili. Tuttavia, l’implementazione delle NBS incontra ancora numerose barriere tecniche e finanziarie.
