Elected officials taking action to restore rivers

Throughout France, local and regional authorities have successfully initiated action programmes to restore rivers. A key challenge in the process of achieving good water status, the restoration of waterways offers many benefits: developing biodiversity, improving the river’s natural flow, flood management, ecological continuity, and more. The examples presented should be multiplied in the coming years.
