Experts gather to consider river restoration and biodiversity
By SuperUser Account 11 Nov 2014
Over 40 experts in river restoration from all over the UK and Ireland gathered in November at the University of Liverpool's Foresight Centre for a two-day workshop to consider the current situation with this important field of work.


This event marked the end of the first phase of the IUCN NCUK's River Restoration and Biodiversity project which has also involved consultants drawing together information from thousands of projects carried out over recent decades.

A report will be produced as part of phase 2. The Liverpool workshop, led by Prof. Phil Boon from Scottish Natural Heritage, was a great success, not just for the valuable networking and knowledge exchange but also for making some advances in consolidating information for wider dissemination and establishing position statements on the next steps required to influence policy, communicate messages and achieve best practice river restoration techniques on the ground.
