Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


The proyect has two main objectives: 1) Improve water quality of water input to Albufera’s lagoon 2) Improve biodiversity by habitat restoration and management

Monitoring surveys and results

Edit project overview to modify the Monitoring survey and results.


Water and biodiversity monitoring each 10 days, specially waterbirds. Restoration and management have boosted local endangered waterfowl populations and eased the colonization of new species for the Albufera wetland. Breeding populations of othe species than birds have established (reptiles and insects).

Lessons learnt

Edit project overview to modify the lessons learnt.


The management through landstewardship agreements and a participatory (universities, volunteering, citizen science), approach have facilitated the integrated management of the wetland and awareness raising. Socio economic improvement of local business (i.e. navigation) has been launched through collaboration with navigators for public use purposes.

Reasons for river restoration

Mitigation of a pressure Pilot project for water quality improvement and biodiversity enhancement through habitat restoration and management.
Hydromorphology Shallow, freshwater, permanent lagoons
Biology Coastal lagoon habitat restoration for water quality indicator species
Physico-chemical Reduction of nitrates and total phosphorous input to the Albufera’s lagoon, also chlorophyll measures.
Other reasons for the project Public use and awareness raising


Measures

Structural measures
Bank/bed modifications Green filters creation and two shallow, permanent lagoons
Floodplain / River corridor
Planform / Channel pattern
Other
Non-structural measures
Management interventions Channels, vegetation and maintenance active, daily management
Social measures (incl. engagement) Sensitization, environmental education of scholars, public use and elaboration of dissemination materials
Other Improvement of the socio-economic and other culture heritage network
