(UNITN project, in cooperation with DICAM, Department of Civil, Enviromental and Mechanic Engineering)

The Project "CLIMatic change impacts on future Availability of WAter REsources and hydro- geological risks - CLIMAWARE", funded by the University of Trento, focuses on the interactions between climate change and human activities related to water, embracing physical, social, legal and economic processes. The project studies how changes in water cycle components related to extremes affect the society and some contiguous sectors (like agriculture, tourism, and energy production), and analyses the role played by social behaviour, economic processes and legal instruments in managing the availability of freshwater.
