Beware at a glance:

BEWARE focuses on the diffusion of a model for climate adaptation to flood risk. In particular, BEWARE targets mainly EU policy priorities on 'Land-use, Land-use change and forestry' (LULUCF) by: 

  • Promoting information and awareness on innovative and cost-efficient landscaping practices and land management techniques in urban and rural areas;
  • Implementing NWRMs in urban areas; the project will contribute to prevent the excessive runoff of water, will enhance surface and ground water status and will create ‘urban habitats’;
  • Encouraging more sustainable agriculture and production techniques with less environmental impact;
  • Ensuring a 'no-debit rule' with respect to greenhouse gas emissions.

The actions of the project are aiming at bringing a change at the local municipal level, involving in particular the Municipality of Santorso and the Municipality of Marano Vicentino.


The main objective of the project is to establish and promote the diffusion of a model for climate adaptation to flood risk.
