Climate Change Mitigation
Italy is one of the European countries most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, and its effects on its territory and resources are already visible. In particular, one main concern is the impact of climate change on the hydrological cycle, with consequences for the economic sectors for which water is a crucial, such as agriculture, tourism and energy. In the future, projected shortages, combined with an increase in demand, are likely to have severe impacts on water supply. Furthermore, other relevant issues like coastal erosion, hydro-geological risk, biodiversity loss and effects on human [IT1] health are expected to become more important as a consequence of future climatic variations.
