RRC 14th Annual Network Conference Scaling up our aspirations for river restoration and management


River restoration, as an overarching concept to provide catchment-wide improvements, in the context of designated rivers and WFD is now firmly on the agenda. Key questions arising from this include: how are projects being delivered on-the-ground?; how can techniques interface with flood risk management requirements?; can we demonstrate early success?; how are local stakeholders engaging with the river restoration process? This conference aims to provide an opportunity to discuss how we are meeting the current challenge of implementation. We encourage the submission of abstracts from the UK and Overseas under the following themes:


 Catchment restoration and management   


River restoration techniques


Flood risk management and Water Framework Directive Structures in rivers


Who should aend to join the discussion? This conference will be of interest to a wide range of people engaged in river restoration and management from policy and planning to engagement and delivery, as well as those working to assess benefits for ecology and ecosystem services. This annual event aracts:


Statutory Agencies Local Government


Planners and Landscape Architects Consultants


Environmental Economists Researchers (social and physical science)


Trusts (e.g. River, Fisheries, Wildlife, etc) Flood Risk Managers


Contractors and Product Developers River Engineers and Modellers NGOs and Landowners Graduates


Conference format The conference will mix standard 15-minute papers with workshops and poster presentations (with a two-minute oral introduction). There will also be a prize for the best poster as judged by the audience.
