Climate change, adaptation and resilience planning strategies


14.30 -16.30 CEST

Adriatic coastal areas and their communities are increasingly at risk due to the ongoing climate changes, resulting in sea level rise and intensification of extreme events with consequent increase of flooding, coastal erosion and saline intrusion effects. It has therefore become necessary to broaden our knowledge of the phenomenon, in order to develop adequate adaptation strategies for coastal cities to be applied at different planning levels and enhance their resilience.

ASTERIS project aims at improving the knowledge of spatial and temporal variations in seawater intrusion in the Adriatic area, based on future downscaled climate scenarios. Within the project needs and barriers to the management of coastal fresh groundwater resources have been identified and mapped, by means of case studies monitoring and modelling activities in three selected sites: Ravenna and Fano coastal areas in Italy and the Neretva Delta area in Croatia. The final aim of the projec is to provide an adaptation plan containing practical tools for sustainable exploitation of vulnerable coastal aquifers.
