Measures for flood risk management and reduction of hydrogeological risk

What is the goal of the investment?

Reduce emergency measures, which are more and more necessary due to frequent disasters, and intervene in a preventive way through a wide and structured programme. Structural measures, aimed at securing against landslides or reducing the risk of flooding, will be accompanied by non-structural measures, focused on maintenance nationally. The goal is to get 1.5 million people currently at risk to safety.

Additional details

Threats due to hydrogeological instability in Italy, aggravated by the effects of climate change and by the absence of an effective national prevention policy nationally, compromise in Italy the safety of human life, agriculture and tourism and the protection of productive activities, ecosystems and biodiversity and environmental and archaeological heritage. Structural measures aimed at ensuring safety against landslides or reducing the risk of flooding are complemented by non-structural measures included in water and flood risk management plans, focusing on land maintenance, rehabilitation, tracking and prevention. In areas hit by disasters, damaged public structures and infrastructure will be restored, as well as reducing the residual risk to protect public and private safety.

What are the benefits?

  • Making safe 1.5 million people currently at risk
  • Implementation, for preventive purposes, of measure envisaged by water and flood risk management plans
  • Maintenance and recovery nationally to avoid hydrogeological instability
  • Restoration of damaged public facilities and infrastructure in disaster-stricken areas
