The Catalan Water Agency has awarded MN Consultants the elaboration of the hydrogeomorphological restoration strategy of the internal basins of Catalonia

The works are structured in various stages. In a first phase, several studies will be developed in order to analyze, in a regional key, the problems related to fluvial connectivity, the ecological state of the riparian banks, and the morphological and morphodynamic issues affecting Catalan rivers. These analyzes will give rise to the spatial and temporal prioritization of restoration actions. Subsequently, more specific studies will be carried out to characterize the streams that require urgent short-term measures, which will be specified and prescribed at the pre-project level. All this will result in a restoration strategy in which the actions to be implemented in each basin will be scheduled during the next few years within the framework of the 'Program of Measures' of the River Basin District Management Plan of Catalonia (2016-2021)’.

The duration of this process is one year and a half, so the strategy will be completed by mid-2019.
