The pre-disaster recovery plan - a tool for climate-proofing Southern Europe


Authors: Mattia Bertin (EPiC | FEEM@Iuav)

Abstract

The climate change is increasing the need of planning tools able to produce great territorial transformations. The urban configurations in Southern Europe, especially the late modern and contemporary neighbourhoods, are frequently situated in very dangerous hydrogeological areas. The local effects of the climate change process act as drivers on these areas, increasing the number of catastrophic impacts. On the one hand there is a need for a capacity to reduce the effects of the disaster in the social, physical and economic dimensions of local communities; on the other hand, there is a need to build tools for territorial adaptation, in order to avoid future impacts. It is more necessary than ever to develop a new urban planning tool to bridge the current risk with future climate-proof transformations.
