Successful end of the project SPARE (Strategic Planning for Alpine Riverine Ecosystems)

From 2016 to 2018, nine project partners from six different Alpine countries had been working together to improve river management and better integrate and balance various human activities with ecosystem conservation. A lot of methods and practices have been analysed, further developed and applied as “adapted models” in SPARE’s five pilot areas: Dora Baltea in Italy, Drôme in France, Inn-Engadine in Switzerland, Soča in Slovenia and Steyr in Austria. The mutual exchange of data, knowledge and experiences in the pilot areas as well as the monitoring and evaluation of these processes feed into common strategies and guidelines.
