Information Platform for the Restoration of Rivers
In the context of this project an information platform is developed to share information about the restoration of rivers including examples of selected restoration projects. The aim of the information platform is to increase attention and acceptance for restoration measures and communicate their need and benefits. The information platform is also intended to assist the German Federal States in their communication with bodies and organizations involved in river restoration.
Furthermore, the project investigates to which extent the UBA method for the evaluation of river restoration measures ("Erfolgskontrolle von Fließgewässerrenaturierungen" UBA Texte 43/2014 [pdf, 7.8 MB, German]) is known and how it is used by practictioners.
Hydromorphological alterations are a main pressure on many water bodies in Germany. The potential stakeholders involved in hydromorphological improvements and the restoration of rivers include municipalities and watercourse associations.
