Report on pilot testing in the Southern Europe region (IT)


This deliverable provides a description of the site and set up of citizen science activities in the Italian case study where the MICS impact assessment will be applied. The Italian case study focuses on the Marzenego River and its tributaries which flow into the Venice Lagoon. The nature-based solutions (NBS) along the Marzenego River have involved restoring two wetlands (Oasi Lycaena and Oasi di Noale) and a new NBS project aims to enlarge the Noale Oasis to increase flood water retention and improve biodiversity. These NBS are the focus of the citizen scientist monitoring activities in the case study. Co-design workshops have identified that the following citizen science monitoring activities will take place: water quality monitoring, bacteriological analysis, riparian vegetation monitoring, aquatic vegetation monitoring.


This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824711.
