The conference was held in Vienna from 27 to 29 October. A poster was presented with the title: “Soil Bioengineering application in river restoration projects: case studies from Southern Portugal “. The following oral communication was also presented: “Problems, pitfalls and opportunities of river restoration project implementation: Ripidurable RicoView and case studies”. Both presentations were based on the work developed within the project Ripidurable, particularly with regard to the restoration of Paul da Goucha. This project aimed to provide an abandoned quarry, which was used as a dump after the operation, with characteristics that promote the use of site as a rest, feeding and nesting area for birds.
