Rome, December 5, 2018

Conference hall Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV), Via di Vigna Murata 605, Rome, 10:30 a.m.

We are pleased to invite you to the Final Conference of the SAVEMEDCOASTS Project, funded by the Directorate General for Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Unions of the European Union (DG-ECHO) for 2017-2018.

The Conference will see the participation of project partners, stakeholders and journalists and will be an important place to exchange information on the state of the art on the assessment of coastal risks caused by the sea level rise, induced by climate change and land subsidence.

Will be presented:

  • The scientific motivations and the main phases of the project that follow the international guidelines for the protection of coasts and resident populations;
  • Projections of sea level rise along the Mediterranean coast, up to the year 2100;
  • Some case studies on the expected coastal flooding scenarios in Italy and Greece, including storms and tsunamis;
  • The assessment of the socio-economic impacts due to the expected floods, useful for the adoption of measures to prevent and mitigate the phenomenon.

Please confirm your participation by 30 November 2018. For information please contact Dr. Marco Anzidei, mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.; Tel. 06 51860214.
