#SDGAction51120
    Description
    Description

    The initiative aims to develop and implement a national platform for the integration and sharing of monitoring and knowledge at different spatial and temporal scales and with different technologies, for sustainable and adaptive water management and forecasting, management and risks mitigation of floods, droughts, fires, contamination (water-related risks).
    The initiative is part of the interventions of the PNRR - National Recovery and Resilience Plan, where, to Component 4 (C4 - Protection of the territory and water resources) of "Mission 2" (M2 - Green Revolution and Ecological Transition) 15.05 billion euros are assigned for coordinated actions that will make the country more resilient to the impacts of climate change and human pressure, protecting natural resources, the territory and biodiversity.
    The actions are defined through investments and reforms to be implemented according to the existing deadlines. In this context, the measure 1 (M2C4.1) aims to strengthen the forecasting capacity of the effects of climate change through the investment I1.1, which amounts to 500 million euros.
    The objective of Investment I1.1 is to develop an advanced and integrated monitoring and forecasting system for the identification of hydrological/water-related risks (SIM), to which the territory, infrastructures and natural resources may be prone as a result of climate change and/or inadequate territorial planning. It is an integrated surveillance/monitoring system, from real time to the long term, to implement both preventive measures (planned maintenance of the territory and maintenance/modernization of infrastructures), and interventions aimed at preventing the illegal waste management, fires, optimizing the use of resources and emergency management. A specific Operational Work Plan (POL) identifies the 4 Components into which the monitoring system have to be structured and implemented (1. Aerospace remote sensing and on-site sensors; 2. Telecommunications system; 3. Analysis and control rooms; 4. IT security systems and services) and the specific intervention topics (vertical applications) to which the components of the system have to apply: Hydrogeological instability monitoring; Precision agriculture; Marine and coastal pollution monitoring; Identification of environmental crimes; Emergency support (natural disasters); forest and interface fires. For each vertical application, the application contents are described and the Central Administrations, Agencies and State Bodies/Departments are identified, whose direct involvement is envisaged, in support of MASE, in the planning and implementation phase of the Monitoring System.
    Involvement takes place through participation in inter-institutional technical working groups set up for each of the vertical applications of the System. The POL is also accompanied by an initial strategic scheme of actions necessary to achieve the investment objectives which, for each action, identifies: objectives, resources (i.e., supporting administrations involved), expected impact, timing of the action.

    Expected Impact

    At the end of the project, all the institutions involved in the integrated management, protection and sustainable use of water, forests and territory, in the mitigation of the risk of drought, floods, landslides, fires and emergencies, will be able to use/share the information and data deriving from monitoring (interoperability of monitoring systems at different scales) as well as the modeling made available on the platform in order to be able to prevent, effectively and in an integrated manner and mitigate the water-related risks.
    This system will be the basis of a real integrated and adaptive management of resources and infrastructures, allowing to make forecasts, to know in real time the circulation and consistency of water resources, to deal with environmental emergencies or to feed early warning services in case of certain types of events.
    Through SIM will be possible to achieve various targets of the SDGs:
    - integrated, sustainable and adaptive water management, availability and access to water in good quality and sufficient quantity (SDG 2.3, 3.3, 3.9, 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, 6.6, 6.a, 6.b, 12.1, 12.2, 12.3, 12.8);
    - the conservation, restoration and sustainable management of water-related terrestrial ecosystems (SDG 8.4, 15.1, 15.4, 15.5);
    - better mitigation of drought and flood risks (SDG 11.3,11.4, 11.5, 13.3, 15.2), contrast to desertification and soil degradation (SDG 15.3)
    - strengthening resilience and capacity to adapt to the impacts of climate change (SDG 1.5, 2.4, 11.b, 13.1,13.2,13.3)
    - an improvement in the conditions of the ecosystems of the Mediterranean Sea also through the reduction of the inflows of pollutants (SDG 14.1, 14.2, 14a)
