Umweltbundesamt 2019: Renaturierung von Fließgewässern in Deutschland. Video. Online: https://youtu.be/PEhVHyFBu-k

This video introduces potential actors to river restoration. It includes interviews with project managers of river restoration measures across Germany.

Core topics of the video include:

  • advantages of near-natural rivers
  • funding for river restoration
  • using the river’s dynamics for restoration
  • provision of land for water restoration projects
  • co-operation and participation

Over 90% of German rivers and streams are straightened, constricted, piped or interrupted by structures such as weirs or barrages. Restoration can improve the ecological status and attractiveness of water bodies.
