Executive summary

The protocol for evaluating river restoration projects (APR) is designed to evaluate project’s contents. In addition, as it is a step by step procedure, it can be used to improve the design of projects

Introduction

River restoration is an increasing practice in terms of number of projects and investment and it will be a challenge in next decades while the Water Framework Directive is being implemented (2000/60/EC). Therefore, it is essential the assumption of some principles as minimum requirements in order to achieve success. We have developed a methodology focused on the evaluation of those projects in terms of design.

Description

The APR has been structured into six sections. The first of these is a compilation of information about the project, while the remaining five constitute the bulk of the evaluation. Thus, Diagnosis, Objectives, Measures, Monitoring program and Budget are evaluated, from the environmental and socio-economic point of view. In each part different aspects are considered and scored with points. Using this rationale up to 500 points may be obtained for each project in both aspects, environmental and socio-economic, and therefore the maximum score is 1000 points. From the outset the protocol has been designed to enable the analysis to be carried out using a software application.
