Pluvial Flood Workshop by REACHOUT City Hub Logroño

Last 19th of March Logroño took a significant milestone on its path to resilience with the Pluvial Flood Workshop hosted by Ayuntamiento de Logroño in the Espacio Lagares (Logroño). The main objective of this workshop was to present the work carried out by CMCC Foundation – Centro Euro Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici with regard to the contextualization of the Pluvial Risk Assessment and Adaptation Tool in Logroño and to gather feedback about future interventions that could be a reality in Logroño in the coming years.

It was great to have Jeremy Pal and Andrea Staccione, from CMCC presenting the outcomes for Logroño in terms of percentage of economic damage reduction and percentage of population exposed taking into consideration the different green scenarios and different climate conditions: historical rainfall (2003-2022) as well as climate change projections for Logroño.

It was a pleasure to have participants from public and private organizations providing their feedback during the second part of the workshop where the flood maps where validated by local participants. Different structural, social and institutional interventions were discussed to select the most appropriate ones as well as the locations to be implemented in the city. It was really interesting to see the sense of urgency to start implementing some of these solutions in Logroño.
