The ECRR is a European network consisting of national centres and individual members bound by their mission to enhance and promote river restoration throughout Europe.
The ECRR counteracts the threats to natural riverine habitats by fostering the establishment of national river restoration networks, and by disseminating information on river restoration.
To stay up to date on river restoration in Europe sign up for the ECRR newsletter.
A meeting was held recently in Lyon with five river basins to start working towards the goals of the WWF6 EU 9 targets (see the news page). To conclude the meeting the restored oxbows “Lône de Jarico” and “Lône de Ciselande” were visited.
The newsletter special on National Centres offers an overview of the wide range of organisations that form the backbone of the ECRR network.
