[WORKSHOP] Workshop on Coastal Erosion in Tuscany

25-27 September 2014

forum

 

The Municipality of Forte dei Marmi, in collaboration with the Department of National Civil Protection, the University of Pisa and the University of Ferrara, and local stakeholders, present the Forte dei Marmi International Forum. The event aims to address issues related to the management, development, and preservation of beaches in areas under pressure from tourism, where erosion processes have an immediate impact on the local economic and social structure. A panel of leading national and international experts will discuss several aspects of the coastal erosion problem, with examples from different sites all over the world.

 

The Forte dei Marmi International Forum, which consists of annual events over a three-year period, will tackle issues of great importance to coastal environments: this year (2014) will provide a description and quantification of dynamic processes (erosion/accretion) and a presentation of the latest monitoring techniques; the second year (2015) will cover the planning of new defence structures, modifications to existing ones, and beach replenishment; and the third year (2016) will examine the general issue of the proper management of the coastal environment. Based on the conclusions that emerge from each event, a defining aspect of the Forum will be the production of a series of practical proposals aimed at the effective and efficient management of coastal areas.

 

The methodology, work progress and achievements of RISC-KIT project will be presented through the Forte dei Marmi International Forum-2014, via a number of presentations of key members of the Consortium, covering multidisciplinary methodological issues and implementation examples from the project's Case Study sites

 

This years event will be held between 25 and 27 September 2014 in Una Hotel & Resort, at Forte di Marmi, Italy.

 

The event is free and fully bilingual (Italian/English) with real-time translation. You can download the registration form here [.pdf] and a short presentation bilingual document here [.pdf].
