A protected wetland where the Neretva River meets the Adriatic Sea. The current speed of climate change is causing a disruption in the boundary balance of the coastal marine environment.


A journey through the history of oceanography

In Kaštela Bay, the study of coastal ecosystems is intertwined with history. Decades of data are collected in the library of the Split Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries. 


The spider web that beats drought

A new solution mimics nature to cope with drought in Zadar. In the rural areas, summer temperatures are reaching alarming levels and rainfall is almost nonexistent. 

Friuli-Venezia giulia

Ancient knowledge and new languages

The archaeological site of Aquileia portrays the millenary history of the town; a valuable narration to understand how ancient civilizations evolved along with the surrounding environment.


Artificial Intelligence for coastal adaptation

The Venice Lido island is vulnerable to many environmental and socioeconomic impacts of climate change. An Artificial Intelligence (AI) model learns from past events to help us predict and adapt to future changes.


Co-design and participation for inclusive adaptation

The Emilia-Romagna Region launched a participatory process to co-create the new Integrated Management Strategy for Coastal Defense and Adaptation to Climate Change (GIDAC). Citizens’ participation is key to build comprehensive and effective adaptation strategies.


One coast, many solutions

How to choose appropriate solutions to coastal erosion in different areas? Along the Marche coast, topographic surveys help experts decide which interventions are the most effective to implement in such a diverse Region.


Following the flames

Continuous changes in weather and sea conditions, and complexities in the management of the area are increasing the likelihood of wildfires on the Molise coast. The Civil Protection is experimenting with new tools for effective monitoring, prevention and adaptation to these phenomena.


Sentinels of change

The lush Posidonia meadows and coral formations on the rocky seabed are suffering from rising temperatures, and the shoreline is slowly dissolving as sea levels rise. A system of buoys monitors the effects of climate change on the coast.
