The Final event of the SEE River Project will be integrated with the 6th edition of the European River Restoration Conference (ERRC2014). This year’s conference deals with some key challenges for the future: How we can innovate Integrated River Basin Management using Green Infrastructure, Natural Water Retention and Contemporary River Corridor Management.

Conference sessions will focus on an innovative new approach called Contemporary River Corridor Management (CRCM). This approach is encapsulated in the SEE River Toolkit for river and land-use planning by focusing on the river corridor as the core part of the catchment area where most pressures on rivers are likely to occur. The approach includes a cross-sectoral engagement and stakeholder dialogue and cooperation at local, regional, national and international levels.
