In this 1hr webinar as part of the CaBA Biodiversity Series, hear about the principles and practicalities of ‘Stage Zero restoration’.

Centuries of river engineering has left most of our rivers trapped within over-deep and straightened channels; these rivers rarely connect with their floodplains except during extreme flood events. With most of our floodplains no longer functioning as they should we have lost valuable habitat, flood and drought resilience, sediment and carbon storage and landscape connectivity. We will explore the principles behind restoring natural function and discuss a range of practical experiences of trying to reconnect rivers with their floodplains (Stage Zero restoration)
