Abstract
This workshop would like to give a contribution towards a more widespread and effective integration of river restoration into river basin planning and management measures for flood and geomorphological risk1 control. As a result of the discussion, we would like to highlight what are the positive aspects and successful experiences of this integration and what are the difficulties and main challenges still to be solved when trying to combine river restoration and risk alleviation measures, implementing a “more room to the river approach”. We would like to investigate whether and to what extent this integrated approach could achieve the objectives of the Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) and the Floods Directive (2007/60/EC) and what tools are available to implement it, highlighting differences and specificities depending on the type of risk and on the national and geographical context. The final output will be a shared document, representing a first draft -to be revised and further developed after the Conference- of policy suggestions to be sent by the ECRR to the Commissioner of the DG Environment Stavros Dimas, to Directorate D “Water, Chemicals & Cohesion”, to the Article 21 Committee of the WFD, to Water Directors.
