Evaluation and Prevention of Natural Risks
This book presents historical analyses carried out in the Piemonte-territory in north-western Italy, which focused on the consequences of hydrogeological risks, revealing that damage is continually increasing. The text suggests that this can partly be explained by the consistent expansion of urbanized areas at the expense of areas that are essential to the natural modelling processes of the region, the damage resulting from hydrogeological instability often being associated with incompatible territorial decisions. It also gives a detailed account of a series of experiences related to activities that ARPA Piemonte has carried out, which focus on the cognitive and forecasting aspects related to risk assessment and alerting procedures.
