Abstract

The elements that put our planet in crisis derive to a large extent from the increasing phenomena of human anthropization. The growth of urbanization has been one of the worsen factors for the increase in temperatures in the city compared to the surrounding rural areas. This phenomenon recognized by the scientific community as the Urban Heat Island effect (UHI), has been analyzed in the context of the Climate Smart Cities of the city of Boston, in order to demonstrate how the design of the Green Infrastructures (GI) is specifically aimed at the mitigation of the urban microclimate and climate changes in progress with the aim for an overall complementary planning. The article wants to highlight how one of the most effective ways to think about GI is that of an integrated approach to spatial planning. The outcome of the expected studies is to validate that policies that adopt such an approach can't only limit the climate effects harmful to human health but also improve the connectivity for the creation of multifunctional landscapes.
