Deliverable 4.16

Guidelines on climate change proof innovative adaptive and cost-effective riparian wetland management (mitigation, adaptation, and restoration) strategies to counteract negative effects of climate-driven changes on riparian wetlands ecosystems, with special focus on effects of temperature changes, changes in water level fluctuations, changes in nutrient loading and their interactions

Abstract: This report presents the review carried out by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH), part of the Natural Environment Research Council, of climate change impacts on riparian habitats and the potential for mitigation of these impacts through adaptation and restoration. The review focuses primarily on results from Europe. The main deliverable, a peer-reviewed journal paper reviewing methods to provide climate change proof innovative, adaptive and cost effective riparian wetland management strategies, will be submitted for publication later in 2014.
