Abstract

Extreme weather events represent serious risks for human activities and infrastructures. Hazards such as floods and droughts are one of the main challenges of the 21st century because of their significant societal and economic implications. In particular, their intensification puts a strain on the continuity of energy supply. The aim of this piece of work is to assess climate changes in average and extreme precipitations for the forthcoming decades over Italy.
