Dam Removal Europe - new report
Posted on July 23, 2018
Removing tens of thousands of obsolete dams in Europe will bring life back to rivers, says new report
With only 40 percent of Europe’s waterways in good condition, a new study published today calls for up to 30,000 redundant dams and other barriers to be removed to help restore rivers and lakes – boosting wildlife populations and benefiting communities across the continent. A new initiative called Dam Removal Europe aims to start an era of dam removal.
Dam Removal Europe (DRE) is a coalition of 5 organizations: WWF, World Fish Migration Foundation, European Rivers Network, The Rivers Trust and Rewilding Europe.
