In the Riou river basin, the floods likely to affect the sector can be very intense and fast, and the dense urban development can generate significant runoff.
Vulnerability and adaptation to climate change
Climate change is a reality that must now be taken into account in designing or rehabilitating every sensitive scheme, in evaluating water resources at a regional or local scale and in managing flood risks. Artelia has specialist teams able to assess the impact of climate change on various natural environments (coasts, rivers, lakes, wetlands, groundwater, etc.), propose adaptation strategies and accompany them with a pertinent economic analysis.
- Socio-economic analysis of the consequences of river Rhone flooding
- Definition of priority actions on the scale of the Plan Rhône programme
- Focus on economic activities
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP Tunisia) and the Coastal Protection and Development Agency (APAL) are jointly implementing a programme aiming to “reduce vulnerability and risks related to climate change in vulnerable coastal areas of Tunisia”.
