The general objective of the research activity is to estimate the best flood risk management strategy considering that it should be effectively combined with water resources management under the common “water security” issue. The specific aim is the knowledge of peak flow and low flow discharges as it plays a central role in all water-related studies and infrastructures design. The lack of observations at the site of interest as well as their inaccuracy, however, bring inevitably to the necessity of developing predictive models. The aim is to provide a method of regionalization that may be useful to assess the desired stream flow index (e.g., low-flow index, flood quantile, peak discharges, etc.) even in ungauged river basins trough local measures and geomorphoclimatic characteristics at the river basin scale. The research might serve as kick off for further studies on promotion of risk perception and mitigation of natural hazards such as droughts and landslides.
