This project contributes to the Blue-Green Biodiversity Research Initiative – an Eawag-WSL collaboration focusing on Biodiversity at the interface of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.
The project will evaluate effects of different forms of interactive involvement in river restoration projects on involved residents' social learning and their psychological ownership based on repeated measurement of their mental models of the issue, their sense of ownership of the local river area and their acceptance of river management alternatives. The goal of the project is to elaborate a practice guideline that informs planners on the value added of interactively involving residents in river restoration.
