The ECRR worked together in close collaboratin with the RESTORE project*, which ran between 2010 and 2013. It launched with six European partners and the objective of making connections between river restoration professionals in Europe and joining existing national efforts on river restoration.
Among the outputs of the RESTORE project are the Layman's report, and the guide for planners: Rivers by Design.

RESTORE received funding from the LIFE+ financial instrument of the European Union.
RESTORE Layman's report
More than a project report, the RESTORE Layman’s Report is an agenda setting document highlighting the achievements of RESTORE, while also looking beyond RESTORE and stressing the key policy and technical challenges that still need to be overcome to take river restoration forward. The report will provide a direction for future activities in the hope that these will be taken up by policy makers and river basin managers. Click to view the report.
