|Abstract: ||In the last decade the need of planning and implementing a sustainable water policy has grown in the International, European comunity and National political milieu. The awareness of applying the concept of sustainability to water resources - according to the ecological, economical, financial and ethical principles - has implied
the development of a complete knowledge framework of the complex National water system.
Since the second postwar period, the Italian National
Institute of Agricultural Economics (Inea) has contributed to design the irrigation water policy in Italy by supporting the Italian Ministry of Agriculture through the provision of technical studies about the issues and development opportunities of the irrigation sector. In particular, in 1965 a specific study produced the publication “Carta delle irrigazioni d’Italia” (Map of irrigation in
Italy), realized on provincial scale through the analysis of data collected at municipal level. The work reported also the historical aspects of irrigation in Italy, the main collective irrigation infrastructures and the irrigated agricultural productions.
After the 1990’s, the need of a more accurate programming of irrigation investments induced the Ministry of Agriculture to improve the state of knowledge about the irrigation sector through the technical support provided
by Inea. Indeed, the recent research activities has been carefully designed in order to capture all the relevant aspects of the irrigation sector such to set up a modern and complete centralized information system. Since 1994, starting from the Southern territories, Inea collected data and information on the irrigation sector and built up the “Information system for water management in
agriculture” (Sigria), focusing on territorial, structural,
economical and managerial aspects. During the 2000’s, the information system has been realized also for the North and Centre of Italy by Inea and Regions.The stabilization of the research activities about the irrigation sector led to the definition of a specific research area inside Inea, called “Water Resources Management”, devoted to research and institutional support. In agreement
with the Ministry of Agriculture, Inea completed
the organization and the update of the collected data in a National geodatabase, called National information system for water management in agriculture (Sigrian). It is the most complete and updated tool for supporting Governmental Institutions both in the efficient allocation
of financial resources for investments and in the optimal planning and management of water resource at river basin level.
The analysis of data and information collected in
Sigrian is the base of the present “Atlante nazionale
dell’irrigazione” (Italian Irrigation Atlas), realized in
2011 to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Unity of Italy.
The Atlas provides an exhaustive presentation of the
current status of the irrigation sector in Italy and its evolution in relation to the former study of 1965, through the illustration of the main collective irrigation systems and the use of water in agriculture on the base of the river basin Districts defined by the Water Framework Directive.
The Atlas focuses on the principal aspects regarding the evolution of the irrigation sector from 1965 at several level: the regulatory framework, the governance at central and District level, the organization of water management at local level, the issues related to water costs and water
management, the description of the state of the main
