A webinar hosted by Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change - "Nature-Based Solutions for Coastal Defense: Experimental and Numerical Modeling" - will be held on 13th July at 1700 (CEST)

During the last decades, millions of dollars have been spent on reducing consequences of extreme events and, to a lesser extent, on climate change adaptation in coastal areas. However, in the last few years, coastal managers have become interested in low environmental impact alternatives, or nature-based solutions (NBS), to protect the coast. In order to better understand how coastal ecosystems can protect the coast, a study was done to analyse the role of the three main vegetated ecosystems that extend along coastal areas: seagrasses, saltmarshes and mangrove forests. This webinar presents the results of different experimental and numerical studies, including new formulations and tools to predict how these ecosystems damp flow energy and can be applied in coastal defense policies as NBS.

  • Speaker: Maria Maza, IHCantabria – Instituto de Hidráulica Ambiental de la Universidad de Cantabria,
  • Moderator: Prof. Nadia Pinardi, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Bologna and Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change Foundation (CMCC)

IHMA Congress 2020

The Congress remains the key forum for IHMA members and the global ports and harbours sector to collaborate, network, share information, and provide updates on the latest industry technology and solutions.

After riding the wave of uncertainty, we’re delighted to offer our speakers, attendees, sponsors and exhibitors this unique opportunity to connect with existing clients and potential customers in 2020 and beyond.

Informa Connect has sourced a premium digital platform with the latest broadcasting, content-sharing and interactive networking features. The platform will be launched in September 2020, hosting a series of pre and post-Congress presentations and discussion forums, and will remain open to all registered attendees for 12-months.

All attendees, sponsors and exhibitors will receive maximum brand reach, increased networking and business development opportunities with an expanded global industry network.

We look forward to seeing you all online for Congress 2020 –’The Next Wave –Navigating the Digital Future’.

Building with Nature requires integration of system knowledge and specific technology. Large-scale system analysis and understanding of the driving processes, physical & ecological, and natural dynamics are key to creating smart Nature-based solutions. Smart solutions are dynamic, meaning they change and develop over time. To make these solutions dynamic, a specific monitoring and maintenance approach is required.

This webinar will explore dynamic Nature-based solutions and show the importance of combing system knowledge with an adaptive monitoring plan. This event will feature 2 panel discussions focusing on Technology and system knowledge for the first hour, and Adaptive management and maintenance and monitoring for the second hour.
