The project will be mainly developed in the Muzza system irrigation district as the prioritized test zone. However, the social-learning process combining stakeholders’ interviews and end-users surveys will be extended to members of the ANBI Lombardia association, including 13 irrigation consortiums (consorzi di bonifica e irrigazione) and two lake regulation consortiums (Adda -Como Lake- and Ticino -Maggiore Lake).
research will focus on a triple-loop on climate change perception (awareness, perceived impacts, and adaptation measures and barriers) applied to individual farmers, and a semi-structured interview about climate narratives and extreme events storylines duly applied to managers of irrigation consortiums.
