General Data
Name of instrument River Basin Plan (Piano di Bacino)
Country IT
Spatial level regional
Type Spatial planning instrument
Subtype Formal planning instrument
Description Prepared by River Basin Authorities, it should comprehensively address land/water resouces management & planning issues at river basin scale; however, Italian RBA have produced so far only specific thematic sections of the RBP, one of the most important of which is the Hydraulic and Soil/morphology Risk Plan (Piano per l'Assetto Idrogeologico), establishing works and specifications for protection against these natural/human-induced risks (typically, flooding and landslides). It sets constraints for spatial and urban planning tools. Mitigation measures include cost estimates. Note that the standard implementation procedure of Italian spatial planning tools comprises a phase (typically lasting 60 days), after an initial Adoption ('Adozione') and before the final Approval ('Approvazione'), when any stakeholders can submit their comments and criticisms.
General objectives Referring to the HSR Plan: Starting from hydraulic and geomorphic risk zoning of river basins, priorities are established for risk mitigation measures, which can be either structural or non-structural.
General objectives keywords risk mitigation;

General assessment of strength and weakness Referring to HSRP:
Strenght: Prevails hierarchiallly over all spatial planning tools with special reference to identified risk zones.
Weakness: It is only a section of the comprehensive River Basin Plan, none of which has still been completed to-date.
