A new growth for the Po delta

Since 1950 the Delta has been subject to a rapid degradation of the coast line due also to a reduction
The relationship between man and environment in the Po Delta Biosphere
The Po delta has achieved the important UNESCO MAB recognition not only for its undoubted environmental characteristics, but also for the balance that has characterized the relationship between man and the environment over the centuries, primarily through the anthropic activities that have allowed the survival of man in these places: fishing, fish farming, shellfish farming. In fact, by definition the UNESCO MAB Biosphere Reserves develop a commitment to sustainable development by identifying areas, terrestrial, coastal and marine ecosystems in which, through appropriate land management as well as socio-economic development, it is committed
