Municipality of Cesenatico: a virtuous example of flood risk prevention and communication to citizens
We have had the pleasure to talk to Matteo Gozzoli, mayor of Cesenatico, a municipality of the Riviera of Romagna affected by the risk of sea storms and flooding caused by a temporary rise in sea level. The local Administration has invested for years and consistently to create a prepared and resilient community. The first automatic early warning system dates back to the end of 2000, but today the municipality can count on a series of integrated and advanced solutions in order to limit the effects of flooding, make the right choices and alert the population in time.
The second edition of the Citizen Observatories for Natural Hazards and Water Management (COWM 2018) has just taken place in Venice. Guido Bernardi from CAE presented his intervention entitled: “Flash-floods, landslides and urban inundations: integration of Large Scale Monitoring Networks and Local Early Warning Systems”.
