B3 EU Policy Drivers for River Restoration

This report forms Action B3, part of the RESTORE project’s communication activities. The purpose is to share knowledge and experience that will be of value to all partners and stakeholders and to inform future policy debate.This report sets out the key drivers and EU legislation and policies that have led to a need to call upon the toolkit for more complex and integrated forms of floodplain and catchment river restoration. It specifically identifies the most significant barriers and constraints that need to be overcome in EU Member States. Examples of good practice are also referenced to facilitate an exchange of information between stakeholders within and across different Member States.



 The report provides a high level review of barriers, constraints and opportunities. Whilst taking a pan-European view using available English summaries in publications and by posing questions to select stakeholders across Europe, this review is limited to the generic findings and is biased towards examples from the UK.
