The project aims to develop risk awareness and participation of citizens and stakeholders. The work plan of the project includes three case studies in three different areas, one in Germany, one in Austria and one in Italy, with the aim to study participatory and decision-making process on the planning and implementation of prevention plans, and governance of hydraulic risk, stimulating participation and adoption of best practices that constitute a reference point in Europe. As Italian case study was chosen Chiascio valley.

  • Catchment area: 727 km2

  • The river originates at an altitude of 850 m above sea level and after 95 km it flows into the Tevere river
