XVII Plinius Conference on Mediterranean Risks

From October 18 to 21 2022, the Villa Mondragone Congress and Event Center in Monte Porzio Catone, Rome, Italy will host the 17th Plinius Conference on Mediterranean Risks organised by the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate of the National Research Council (Cnr-Isac) together with the European Geosciences Union (EGU).

The aim of this edition, built around 7 sessions, is to provide an interdisciplinary forum to discuss our current state of knowledge of Mediterranean risks in a climate change context. A multi-sectoral approach will be used to analyse the different aspects related to monitoring, assessment, diagnosis, prediction, and definition of weather extremes and hydro-geological effects, impacts on natural resources, agriculture, health and society, as well as adaptation capacity and preservation strategies for natural and cultural heritage at risk.

This multidisciplinary approach will be possible thanks to the participation of international scientific experts in the fields of meteorology, hydrology, geomorphology, sociology, economy, engineering, cultural heritage conservation, as well as governmental or private risk management actors.

The event is finished.
