” Saline intrusion: a potential risk for coastal aquifer management in a changing climate”
Adriatic and Ionian coastal regions need improved protection of freshwater aquifers to saline intrusion through a sustainable management of water resources. There are common challenges to tackle: expected climate change impacts on sea level rise and precipitation rates; water supply essential for sustainability of coastal societies and ecosystems; increased consumption for human activities, including agriculture, increasing the risk of seawater intrusion towards freshwater aquifiers. The Event, organized in cooperation with Municipality of Fano and University of Urbino, will open a discussion among different stakeholders engaged in this specific field, and it will be an opportunity to share ASTERIS project as a good practice.

Small ports in the Blue Economy strategy”
The round table aims to illustrate how the global and sustainable growth of the small ports of the Adriatic Sea can be encouraged through a long-term strategy.
The Chamber of Commerce of Chieti Pescara and the Municipality of Vasto would like to start a debate on how to strengthen the economic role of small ports for the development of coastal areas and in particular how they contribute to the whole strategy of blue economy and international transport.

✔ 12th May 16:00
SMEs towards the Circular Economy”
The Circular Economy Action Plan is at the core of the European Green Deal, the EU roadmap towards climate-neutrality. It is crucial to help European businesses and consumers to make the transition to a stronger and more circular economy where resources are used in a more sustainable way. The implementation of this plan, which aims to make the economy cleaner and more competitive, will impact SMEs through: measures to reinforce waste management, measures on the usage of critical raw materials and support to implement the circular economy strategies and practices. The event, organized in cooperation with Marche Chamber of Commerce and Split Chamber of Economy, aims to learn more about the framework on the Green Deal with particular reference to the circular economy in some of the EUSAIR countries.
