A European national river continuity restoration policies review

This STOWA/ECRR study has the goal to investigate selected national European river continuity restoration policies in-depth providing various country organisations information and knowledge for making, improving and updating concerning new requirements, the laws and regulations for river continuity restoration. Similarities and differences as well as the completeness and effectiveness of the single policies were identified to determine if it is possible and useful to create a general policy framework for river continuity restoration. Existing issues as well as successful functions of the river (continuity) restoration policies of the single countries are analysed, discussed and recommendations on what an effective and complete policy should entail are given.
