This event seeks to underline the importance and raise awareness of the benefits of free-flowing rivers for their ecosystem services.

About this Event

Currently, we are witnessing an unprecedented rate of biodiversity loss globally – and it is particularly alarming in freshwater ecosystems. Especially in Europe, where our rivers and lakes have seen the most dramatic species decline.

2020 has been named the “Super Year” for biodiversity, as the global community is preparing the Strategic Framework to reverse the trend of Biodiversity loss during the coming decade.

The EU Water Framework Directive addresses many challenges that freshwater ecosystems presently face, and the law has been declared fit for purpose. Notwithstanding, a stronger effort to improve the protection of freshwater biodiversity for people and nature is critical, and needs the highest attention at EU level.

Aiming to bring in expertise and results from TNC’s, Wetlands International’s and our Partner’s work in the USA and Europe, among others (NGOs, Member States & the European Commission), the event looks to present the rationale, best practices and measures to tackle river restoration and protection with the goal to halt biodiversity decline within the frame of the new EU Biodiversity Strategy and current EU Water Legislation.
