Additional details

The increasingly frequent water crises due to ongoing climate change means that primary water infrastructure for civil, agricultural, industrial and environmental uses must be made more efficient and resilient to ensure security of water supply in all sectors and overcome the "politics of emergency".  The investment is intended to ensure, not just the security of water supply, but adapting and maintaining the safety of structural works and their increased resilience, including in view of adapting to ongoing climate changes. The measures will have different purposes depending on the geographical area, in particular with the completion of large unfinished plants especially in Southern Italy.

  • Increase in safety and resiliency of the water infrastructures
  • Constant water supply for the main cities and irrigated areas
  • Complete the unfinished plants, especially those in Southern Italy
  • Reduction of the gap between the North and the South
  • Create jobs for the agencies in that sector that will manage the works
