a strategic approach to planning and management

Published: 2019

Brief Description

This book presents a framework for a more strategic approach to planning and implementing river restoration measures. The framework is designed to balance the multiple roles performed by river systems and to support river restoration that better aligns with the broader social, economic, and ecological objectives for a basin. In addition to describing the history and evolution of approaches to restoration, the book considers issues including: setting restoration goals and objectives; assessing the costs and benefits of restoration measures; prioritizing restoration measures; and restoring urban rivers.
