Sustainable land use: vulnerability and resilience

How can we develop strategies to improve a better land use in the context of Cagliari?

The value of the soil resource - in terms of the provision of eco-systemic services regulation support and cultural - is one of the causes of its misuse which leads to serious effects deriving from the loss of its functions.

Challenge vision

The limitation of the consumption of new soils and the definition of development models able to reduce environmental problems, connected with the improper use of the territory, have been central objectives of the European political agenda for several decades now.

However, as shown by the data presented in the ISPRA 2018 report, land consumption in Italy does not stop: our country - with 7.7% of the territory sealed by cement and asphalt - is placed in the top European rankings, as one of the countries with the highest land use value in Europe.

The lack of awareness of the value of the soil resource - in terms of the provision of eco-systemic services (food products, biomass, etc.), regulation (climate regulation, mitigation of hydrogeological risks, etc.), support (habitat of the species , conservation of biodiversity, etc.) and cultural (landscape, natural heritage, recreational services, etc.) - is one of the causes of its misuse which leads to serious effects deriving from the loss of its functions.

Starting from these problems, the working table will develop strategies for reducing land use in the context of Cagliari, proposing solutions aimed at improving the condition of some areas of the city. The participants will also be able to evaluate the possible integration between public intervention and the activities of private subjects, considering this aspect as fundamental for the implementation of the proposed solutions.
