Last modified: 09 February 2017
A Research and Development Seminar is organised in ERCE by the European Regional Centre for Ecohydrology and the The Stanisław Sakowicz Inland Fisheries Institute in Olsztyn to celebrate the launch of the AMBER project.
The AMBER project (funded from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 689682) stands for Adaptive Management of Barriers in European Rivers. The AMBER project seeks to apply adaptive management to the operation of dams and barriers in European rivers to achieve a more efficient restoration of stream connectivity, and address impacts caused by river fragmentation.
AMBER will apply adaptive barrier management to help reconnect Europe’s rivers, the smart way.
- Create - the first global assessment of stream connectivity across Europe which will serve to highlight the areas where restoration is most needed.
- Make - the first application of eDNA for river restoration, and will provide an essential management tool for the prioritization of areas for conservation and barrier management.
- Develop - a comprehensive socio-economic and hydro-ecological framework for guiding the restoration of local river ecosystems and the ecological, genetic and analytical tools for its implementation.
- Provide - unparalleled opportunities for real time monitoring by turning citizens into stewards of the river’s natural capital using citizen science.
