IBERIAN CENTRE FOR RIVER RESTORATION
A group of professionals linked to river restoration in the Iberian Peninsula, coming from universities, authorities, private consultancies and non governmental organisations decided to promote the Iberian Centre for River Restoration (CIREF) with the aim of reverting the trend of degradation that these ecosystems undergo at present.
CIREF is awarded two Open Rivers grants to draft the demolition project of the Molino de Arquijas dam and to demolish the Molino de Gastiáin dam, on the Ega river
Goals and activities
Conservation and restoration of fluvial ecosystems is, with no doubt, one of today’s big environmental challenges. Iberian rivers, streams and watercourses are, in more or less degree, far from their ecological optimum level.
