Message from 12th SILUSBA
In this 12th edition of SILUSBA we will focus on the topic of water and land management, since it is clear that an increasingly comprehensive management of this natural capital is certain to contribute to more harmonious and sustainable development.
It is essential to examine the interrelationships between water resources management and spatial planning, and any dysfunctions in the interaction and coordination of these two areas. The concept of integrated water resources management should keep in mind the way the territory is used by the range of human activities.
