Published the National Guidelines for Coastal Defence from Erosion phenomena and for Adaptation to Climate Change effects.

The Italian Regions network of the Bologna Charter Initiative and its JAP inspired the Ministry of Environment, Territory and Sea Protection to launch this work line within the National Board on Coastal Erosion (Protocol Ministry-Regions 2016). The coastal Regions collaborated actively, with coordination role in thematic working groups with ISPRA, Basin Authorities, Universities and Research Community, for the formulation and issue of the National Guidelines now published. Given a proper structured basis, contents and perspective, it’s born as a “live” document updatable through the further contributions of all subjects involved in coastal protection, management and adaptation.
