Renaturierung von Fließgewässern in Deutschland

Renaturierung von Fließgewässern in Deutschland

River Restoration in Germany
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.

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
