The RiverWiki is an interactive database for sharing river restoration knowledge. It was one of the key outputs from the EU LIFE+ RESTORE project. The River Restoration Centre (RRC) manages the content of the RiverWiki on behalf of the European Centre for River Restoration (ECRR), with the aim to facilitate a shared resource from which we can all learn and develop our skills. Anyone can view the RiverWiki and registered users can upload their projects with information such as objectives, techniques, costs, ecosystem benefits, monitoring results and outcomes. Our anticipation is that the RiverWiki will be populated with projects from around the world.
