Abstract

Although blue-green infrastructures play an important role in cities climate change adaptation and natural risk reduction, they are still not considered a priority of urban action since there are not clear methodologies able to show that they could produce effects that would be much more beneficial than the ones achievable with grey infrastructures. The paper proposes a new proactive approach to disaster risk reduction and describes how the combination of blue-green infrastructures with urban regeneration, economic development and social enhancement, could join regulative and regenerative function with urban resilience increasing.
