Abstract

The European Commission has adopted the European Adaptation Strategy with the obligation for all the Member States to implement national plans to cope with the inevitable Climate Change impacts by 2017. Creating a waterproof city requires intensive cooperation, public awareness and citizens involvement. The issues are very topical because of the recent increase in extreme events related to climate change: heavy rains, tornadoes, water scarcity, drought. In recent years, there have been phenomena due to climate change, with temperatures and precipitations that have significant values of interest not in the conformation of the average value, but especially in the maximum seasonal and daily peak intensity. The methodology provides the study of some case studies that have been characterized by the experimentation of policies and strategies for successful adaptation and mitigation of hydraulic risks, in particular with regard to the preparation of climate adaptation strategies that have been tested successfully in some cities like Copenhagen, Rotterdam, Vancouver...The main goals and results of the research are related to the replicability of the analyzed best practices, with the aim of providing the municipalities of Southern Italy, and in particular of the Calabrian and Sicilian areas, with the appropriate tools and strategies to create waterproof cities with the full involvement of the settled communities.
