ECRR Newsletter 2-2018 July

The content of this ECRR Newsletter shows that the river restoration and river management communities are more, and more together on the move for more and better river restoration activities. The articles about the IS Rivers 2018 Conference and the GWP-CEE Summer School 2018 ‘Towards Agenda 2030’ witness a real drive by the youth and the science. Then the articles of the winner of the UK River Prize 2018 ‘Hill to Levels’, the French river continuity restoration approach and the Yecla de Yeltes Dam Removal, in Spain prove that the (best) practices are available.

The DriDanube Project article on the ‘Drought Risk in the Danube region’ describes an advanced approach for monitoring, early warning and impact assessments of droughts for the development of a strategy to improve drought emergency response.

A number of informative announcements are in this issue highlighted as well: The World Rivers Day on the 23rd of September, a handbook presentation ‘From sea to source 2.0’ on river connectivity restoration, and a call for cooperation on knowledge about all aspects of riparian vegetation by the COST CONVERGES Action. We want to remark the 16th EUROPE-INBO 2018 International Conference on the implementation of the European Water Framework Directive will be held in Sevilla, Spain and finally the international river restoration event calendar is updated extensively.

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).
