ECRR Newsletter 3/2017 December

With this issue of the ECRR Newsletter it appears that there is an increasing interest to publish about ecological river restoration. Moreover, there is a certain development in the type of articles about this item. The content of the articles on river restoration shows nowadays more diversity than in the past. This proves to our opinion, that river restoration is becoming more and more a well known and even cross cutting activity, not only related to nature conservation and protection of specific flora and fauna species. Ecological (river) restoration, defined as the process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged, or estroyed, is more and more recognized as an activity being key to delivering essential cosystem services (Aichi Biodiversity Target 14).
