RESI – River Ecosystem Services Index – Lahn

Information on ecosystem services can substantially improve the performance of restoration measures in rivers and floodplains supporting water resource management and nature conservation.

RESI aims to quantify the ecosystem services in river landscapes. The RESI Lahn project applies the RESI method to assess and evaluate the current state of ecosystem services provision of the river and its floodplain.
