 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'REFORM is targeted towards development of guidance and tools to make river restoration and mitigation measures more cost-effective and to support the 2nd and future River Basin Management Plans (RMBPs) for the WFD. Aims of REFORM are (1) to provide a framework for improving the success of hydromorphological restoration measures and (2) to assess more effectively the state of rivers, floodplains and connected groundwater systems. The restoration framework addresses the relevance of dynamic processes at various spatial and temporal scales, the need for setting end-points, analysis of risks and benefits, integration with other societal demands (e.g. flood protection and water supply), and resilience to climate change.

The consortium comprises scientists and practitioners covering a wide range of disciplines (hydrology, hydraulics and geomorphology, ecology, socio-economics). The workplan is organized in three modules: (1) natural processes, (2) degradation, (3) restoration. Data from monitoring programmes and restoration projects will be pooled and linked with landscape-scale hydromorphological and physiographic data and catchment models. Targeted field and experimental studies using common protocols will fill data gaps on the role of scale in restoration success. A wide range of statistical modeling approaches will improve indicators for hydromorphological change and factors determining restoration success. All work packages are multidisciplinary and will feed into products for application in river basin management, e.g. guidelines for successful restoration and a web-based tool for exchanging experiences with river restoration measures facilitated and enhanced through consultation with stakeholders.

In addition to its impact on the RBMPs, REFORM will provide guidance to other EU directives (groundwater, floods, energy from renewable resources, habitats) to integrate their objectives into conservation and restoration of rivers as sustainable ecosystems'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Rivers provide essential ecosystem services, but human activities have often severely reduced water quality, sometimes to the extent that life can no longer be supported. Researchers are currently investigating ways to restore Europe's river networks.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Recent analyses have indicated that 40 % of European rivers are affected by hydropower, navigation, agriculture, flood protection measures and urban development. As a consequence, restoration of river hydrology and morphology has become a priority.

'Restoring rivers for effective catchment management' (http://www.reformrivers.eu (REFORM)) is an EU-funded project aimed at providing the guidance and tools needed for successful and cost-effective river restoration. It will achieve these objectives through research in the fields of hydrology, hydraulics, geomorphology, ecology, socioeconomics and water management.

The specific aims are to provide a framework for better hydromorphological restoration measures, and to assess the state of rivers, floodplains and connected groundwater systems. Much of the work so far has been dedicated to reviewing existing information, and collecting and compiling relevant data. For instance, researchers are looking at catchments of medium-sized rivers in order to compare the benefits of so-called flagship restoration measures with normal restoration and control sites.

A sampling protocol has been prepared, which will provide a complex set of standardised data for information on river restoration planning.

In addition, a protocol to benchmark restoration activities has been developed, with an emphasis on communication and information dissemination.

REFORM hopes to provide guidance to relevant EU directives to ensure the conservation and restoration of rivers as sustainable ecosystems.

The management of groundwater, floods, energy from renewable resources and habitats is set to benefit.
