  1. 1. SOUTHERN REGION The RESTORE project has been made possible with the support of EU LIFE+ funding
  2. 2. ITALYSPAIN + PORTUGALFRANCESLOVENIAGREECE(SWITZERLAND) The RESTORE project has been made possible with the support of EU LIFE+ funding
  3. 3. RR Database:besides France and to someextent Switzerland, noestablished national databases looking for feedback on implemented projects ! The RESTORE project has been made possible with the support of EU LIFE+ funding
  4. 4. Workshop “THE ECONOMICS OF RIVER RESTORATION, costs, benefits, evaluation methods”, within the The RESTORE project has been made possible with the support of EU LIFE+ funding
  5. 5. Field trip “INCISED RIVERS AND MORPHOLOGICAL RESTORATION” Italy and Austria, 25-28 October 2011 The RESTORE project has been made possible with the support of EU LIFE+ funding
  6. 6. From the Secchia to the TagliamentoThe RESTORE project has been made possible with the support of EU LIFE+ funding
  7. 7. 1. Sediment transport and geomorphological dynamics:present knowledge and research needsWhat is the present level of knowledge in different nationalor basin contexts? Is it sufficient to understand existingproblems and present trends? And to define planning andmanagement lines of action? Based upon the exchange ofviews between scientists and planners/managers, whichappear to be the most important gaps to be filled? Whereshould funds for research and monitoring be primarilyallocated? The RESTORE project has been made possible with the support of EU LIFE+ funding
  8. 8. 2. A new vision for incised rivers: what level of ambition can weafford?The issue can be addressed at different levels- Technical: what kind of "vision" is appropriate, both in extreme cases,such as the Secchia, where the alluvial layer has been completely lost andthe morphological profoundly altered, as well as, is in the most "ordinary"cases, typical of many Italian rivers (e.g. Adige or Aurino) where thedegree of reversibility of is theoretically higher.- Planning: the main driver for morphological restoration to controlincision will probably be the joint implementation of the WaterFramework (2000/60/EC) and Floods (2007/60/EC) Directives. What canwe expected by 2015, 2021, 2027? What is already ongoing in Italy? Andin other Mediterranean countries? The RESTORE project has been made possible with the support of EU LIFE+ funding
  9. 9. 3. Reactivating sediment sources and transport: main alternatives andexperiencesOne of the key elements in the restoration of incised rivers is thereactivation of sediments sources and/or sediment transport. Severalsolutions can be applied, i.e. removing / modifying the physical barriersthat separate the river from potential sources (e.g. slope stabilizationworks, bank protections, etc.) or that prevent or limit the transportdownstream (dams, weirs, etc.), or acting on management proceduresof dams and works for water abstraction and regulation that modify thewater and sediment flow regime.What interventions of this type do you know directly? Have some ofthese actions already been implemented in your area? Are theyexpected to be carried out in the near future? What kind of technical,economic, legislative or social factors may facilitate or hinder their The RESTORE project has been made possible with the support of EU LIFE+ fundingapplication?
  10. 10. 4. Is it appropriate –and if so, to what extent- to use extractedmaterial to fund restoration?In an increasing number of cases, proposals and actualinterventions of morphological restoration are associated withthe partial or total sale of the extracted material, in order to(co)fund the works. This issue raises concerns of both "ethical"and strategic kind: is this approach just a "Trojan horse" for newin-stream gravel extraction? A real need due to insufficientfunding for river restoration? Or a common practice that couldnonetheless be limited or abandoned? Is it possible to suggest ageneral approach or does it depend on the specific context? Inthe latter case, within what boundaries and under whatcircumstancesRESTORE projectbebeen made possible with the support of EU LIFE+ funding The it may has acceptable without prejudice of futureimprovements to the water body?
