Roma, 21 September


ISPRA will presents nthe new data on soil consumption in Italy and the 2019 edition of the Report of the National System for Environmental Protection. With a 180% increase in soil consumption from the 1950s to the present, the natural surface in Italy is reducing every year, increasing the negative effects on the territory, environment and the landscape. The contribution of the research, in addition to monitoring the trend of the phenomenon and the related environmental damage, is important for new planning perspectives and to provide tools and criteria useful for sustainable planning of urban areas.

Workshop: "Evaluation of physical effects related to sediment handling in marine-coastal areas: tools and methodologies of approach"

Livorno, 10 aprile

Sediment handling operations in marine-coastal areas can alter the natural chemical, physical and biological ecosystem balance. Mathematical models support the quantification of potential environmental effects, in the various phases of planning and management of operations, to evaluate project choices and plan monitoring. The project Se.D.Ri.Port. aims to share procedures and strategies across borders and is financed by the Interreg Program of cooperation between Italy and Maritime France 2014-2020. Starting from current regulations and best practices, ISPRA and ARPAL share methodological principles with the aim of creating operational tools to address the issue of dredging and sediment management through the implementation of models. Specific insights are aimed at optimizing the monitoring networks in harbour areas

Environmental Data Year Book

Rome, 19 march

Today ISPRA presents at the Italian Chamber of Deputies the Environmental Data Yearbook 2018, result of complex and articulated research that includes multiple phases: from the systematic collection of primary data to monitoring and control, from the assessment of scientific solidity of information to the development of statistical indicators that are increasingly effective to describe the country's environmental conditions.This work is carried out by the Institute for Environmental Protection and Research (ISPRA) in collaboration with the regional environmental protection agencies and the autonomous provinces within the National System for Environmental Protection (SNPA), established two years ago with Law 132 of 28 June 2016

The environmental data year book, with a core-set of 306 indicators  for a total amount of 150.000 data updated, it’s not a “data-base”, a simply informative system, but a useful and completed tool of knowledge for citizens, experts and decision-makers. This edition also contains the “Date on Environment” report, with a selections and synthesis of the thematics and environmental indicators in compliance with the targets of the VII Program of Environmental Action of EEA; the "Data Yearbook in numbers", that is a summary of the Data year book (integral version) for a general public, and finally the: "Recapitulate the environment: Environmental Data Yearbook"
