CLIMATE SIGNIFICANCE

Italy has cut emissions by 23% since 1990 and has invested €4 billion to further reduce emissions between now and 2020.

Agriculture, one of the pillars of the Italian economy, as much as national identity, is already suffering clear consequences from pollution and climate change. Wine production is down by as much as 25% in the wine regions (which is much of the country). 

Venice, an ancient city sitting on a lagoon in the Adriatic sea, embodies the struggle of Italy against climate change. Each year, the city sinks into the sea, due to its old age and the rising sea level. In 2018, one of the longest-lasting floods paralysed the city for over a month until the water receded.

Waste management has become a major problem in Italy as a large portion of this task was taken over by organised crime. This has turned into a public health crisis with toxic waste littering the Campana region and improper disposal of waste leading to the contamination of soil, water and horrible effects for the people around them. 

The Italian Alps are also on the new thaw line of climate change. Since 1980, Europe has lost about 20% of its glaciers. The Calderone, Europe’s southernmost glacier in the Abbruzze, is expected to completely disappear by 2020. If nothing is done, temperatures in Italian mountains could go up by as much as 4°C and cause vast changes in the modes of life of the local population. Long-standing economic activities such as ski resorts are threatened to close in the foreseeable future.

Italy is part of the Mediterranean basin, which is going through speedy changes in its climatic fabric. This region has dried up and is expected to experience more frequent droughts and a drastic diminishing of precipitation. Italy needs help to control the adverse impacts of climate change on its livelihoods and yours. Never forget - tiramisu is best served cold.
