The main responsibility of the Po River Basin Authority is drafting and implementing the Po River Basin Plan, focussing on land and water resources conservation, planning and management, assessment and mapping of flood and geological risks and identification of optimal risk-mitigation policies. AdB-Po personnel has a strong background in EU Flood Directive implementation.
From 17-19 September 2019, the final System-Risk Conference took place in Potsdam, Germany.
SYSTEM-RISK ETN jointly organises with the SPATE (Space-Time Dynamics of Extreme Floods, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) (FOR 2416)) consortium a workshop on the definition of extreme flood and storm events.
