Italy

Po Valley (Panaro river, Comacchio valleys, Reno, Emilia Romagna coastal area)


MOTIVATION FOR CHOICE ACCORDING TO HAZARD EXPOSURE AND ASSET VALUE
– The delta of Po river is representing the transition between the river and the sea, and has therefore different hydraulic, morphological and biological characteristics
– Flooding, droughts, coastal erosion, potential storm surge
– Economic engine for Italy (agriculture fisheries, food, manufacturing)
– Biodiversity is at risk (UNESCO protected areas)

 

POSSIBLE NATURE-BASED AND HYBRID SOLUTIONS
– Seeding of deep rooting plants for river-bank reinforcement
– Debris usage to reduce subsidence
– Enhancement of biodiversity
– Filtration strategies to reduce eutrophication and preserve water quality
– Promote practices to reduce water usage, promoting alternative crops
