Danish Centre for River Restoration - DCVR

Welcome to the homepage of the Danish Centre for River Restoration (Dansk Center for Vandløbsrestaurering - DCVR)

DCVR is a network that brings together people working with river restoration in Denmark.

DCVR ensures that Danish information on river restoration is collected, processed and disseminated through newsletters, through this home page and by the organising of meetings etc.

In time, the Centre will be able to provide an increasing amount of information on river restoration and an overview of measures taken in different parts of Denmark. DCVR therefore hope that anybody, who can contribute with relevant information or experiences, whether good or bad, will forward this information to the centre.

The network comprises representatives from the Danish county authorities, local authorities, private companies and a considerable number of private individuals. The National Environmental Research Institute (NERI) currently leads the DCVR. The participants are always free to contact the Centre.

DCVR is the Danish national network under the European Centre for River Restoration (ECRR) established in 1995.

While DCVR is mainly occupied with Danish issues concerning river restoration, ECRR is involved in international issues.

One of the main objectives of the ECRR is to facilitate the exchange of information and experiences on restoration of rivers and riparian areas and thereby advocate river restoration in as many European countries as possible. The establishment of a network of national networks in all European countries is one way of achieving this goal. DCVR are the main contact point between the participants in the Danish network and the ECRR.

Anyone interested in river restoration can become a participant of DCVR by simply clicking on Registration in the menu.

If you are interested in river restoration at an international scale you can become a participant of ECRR. You can register your membership on www.ECRR.org

Database on river restoration projects

The Danish Centre for River Restoration in co-operation with the Danish counties and the British River Restoration Centre (RRC) , have developed a river restoration classification system and created a database on Danish river restoration projects. For more information on the database click here.
