DROUGHT | Episode 4 Season 1
From the analysis of the SPI (Standardized Precipitation Index) on different time scales, it can be seen that the disturbances that occurred between May and June are in any case not sufficient to remedy the water deficit accumulated in the medium and long term. A deficit that is now also affecting various areas of central-south, in particular Tuscany, Lazio, part of Umbria and Campania, Puglia, Calabria and Sicily. Why should we be interested? Because the whole of Italy is suffering from drops in surface water levels and a very strong reduction of groundwater. Agriculture is on its knees as plants have stopped making nectar. Water is an essential resource for living organisms and for the bee it is no different (consumption of up to 5 liters per day) . "The average annual value of water resources available for the last thirty years 1991-2020 has reduced by 19% compared to that relating to the thirty years 1921-1950" - ISPRA environment
