Politecnico di Milano

Milan, , IT

Climate change impact on water resource systems in Lombardy is already being recorded. Since several years, the great lakes are suffering from prolonged droughts which are threatening both agricultural activities downstream and tourism on the lake. The research will develop a decision-analytic platform to plan adaptation strategies such as a dynamic regulation range or new hydropower licenses. The developed methodologies will be demonstrated in the Adda River basin, with the goal of providing a support to the planning of water management policies by increasing their sustainability, mitigating competing demands, and defining new adaptation options for a participated governance.
