River Restoration: A Strategic Approach to Planning and Management

This book has been drafted as part of an extended dialogue that took place between 2012 and 2015, between a team of international experts led by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and a Chinese policy team led by the General Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Planning and Design (GIWP), Ministry of Water Resources, People’s Republic of China.

The book consists of two parts:
Part A provides an overview of the history and evolution of river restoration, it sets out a framework for planning and implementing river restoration, and it adresses some key principles, issues, and methods for restoring rivers in the wider context of water resource management and river basin planning.

Part B includes more detailed discussions of techniques and approaches to river restoration, including chapters on assessing river health, prioritising river restoration projects, restoration of urban rivers, and river restoration measures.
