Reports by IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change) define scenarios that concern all components of the natural world, including energy and mass transfer processes, thereby affecting a wide range of human activities and economy. In the most sensitive areas, forecasts suggest a loss of territory and economic damage. Even for the most optimistic hypotheses, States are called upon to respond effectively and well before those scenarios could come true. Adaptation, pursued as a set of planned activities at least on the precautionary principle, should make some choices concerning land use reversible, avoiding additional mortgages on land and resources. The case of the Northern Adriatic Sea - a branch of the Mediterranean characterized by shallow coast, wide lagoons, unique historical towns, key infrastructures and important industrial plants - is considered. Analyzing the real state (as scientific knowledge and socio economic consciousness) the Authors draw a grid of actions needed to develop an adaptation strategy: (a) to assess the trend of the risk of flooding in coastal, depressed Italian plains, in relation to the natural movement expected in the long run; (b) to determine the specificity of the trends of sea level in the Northern Adriatic and the Lagoon of Venice, in the light of the latest data available, (c) to start up a discussion on the possible adaptation strategies for sandy coasts, lagoons and depressed hydraulic-drained transition zones; (d) to better define scenarios in relation to the presence of the various human activities; (e) to determine the degree of reversibility of regional infrastructures, (f) and adaptation options of decision-making process, including regulatory, in relation to forecast scenarios in the specific case.
