Italian Government partners with Antigua’s National Park on Climate Change Adaptation & Heritage Site Preservation

The National Parks Authority greeted a delegation from the Italian Government on a visit to Antigua and Barbuda on the 14th and 15th of May. The delegation included Professor Peirpaolo Campostrini, Managing Director of the Consortium for Coordination of Research Activities Concerning the Venice Lagoon System(CORILA), the organization responsible for protecting the city of Venice, Italy against rising sea levels, flooding, and degradation of the historic city.

This visit was organized by the Italian Ambassador Gianni Piccato after his repeated visits and keen interest in the heritage management challenges faced in the Nelson’s Dockyard National Park due to sea level rise, coastal erosion and financial sustainability, saw ways in which Italy could partner with Antigua and Barbuda.
