THE PROJECT

The objective of the project is the definition of control strategies for the optimal management of water resources in the Adda river basin. To this aim, our team will develop tools and analytics for evaluating the contribution of several planning alternatives in building drought-resilient community with high adaptation capacity to climate, socio-economics and technological changes.  In particular, the project will focus on the optimiziation of the lake regulation, the re-assignment of hydropower licences, the realization of a bulkhead system in the city of Como.  Additional actions will eventually be identified during the project development, in collaboration with stakeholders. ADDAPT  is expected to provide a concrete support for water resources management in the area by enhancing water sustainability, reducing conflicts among stakeholders (hydropower companies, irrigation districts and coastal communities), and by providing new and specific tools for the definition of  participatory governance strategies.
