Planning and Implementation of Restoration Projects


Umweltbundesamt (2019): Planning and implementation of restoration projects. Infographic. Online:

The project schedule for river restoration projects can vary greatly. This flow chart shows the most important project steps. Natural river development is a complex undertaking. A well-structured planning management creates the prerequisites for a balanced solution and an efficient and successful implementation of measures.

Sustainable river development is a complex undertaking. Clear restoration objectives must be defined, different interests must be balanced and various legal requirements must be taken into account.
