Abstract

The project recognizes the increased risk of flood events in coastal catchment areas in Sicily and Malta, resulting from the impacts of climate change. This risk has been exacerbated by anthropogenic activities, including the increased urbanization of the low-lying areas of these catchments, creating increased hazards to human life, economic and cultural activities.

The project focuses on the mitigation of these risks, through the increased integration of nature-based solutions in the urbanized sections of these catchments, reducing the flow of rain runoff-water and more importantly giving back water to nature, hence supporting the comprehensive optimization of cross-border coastal communities.

Current state

The first action focuses on the testing (adaptation) of three types of GUIs which will be analysed and implemented within the project at laboratory and real scale in Sicily and Malta.

The second action of the project focuses on the integration of these GUIs in a GIS based catchment model which will enable the modelling of runoff flows (and flooding) under different scenarios of GUI application.

The third action of the project focus on the development of a masterplan which will collate the results of the previous two project actions.
