A workshop on methods for river hydromorphological assessment and monitoring took place on 20 – 22 November 2017 at Palacio de zurbano, Madrid (hosted by the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Food and Environment).

The workshop included a field trip to the Manzanares River Restoration project and its relation with hydromorphology and the WFD on Wednesday 22 November.

The key aims of this workshop:

  • Discuss lessons learned and challenges identified from the country responses to the Euro-pean questionnaire on hydromorphological assessment and monitoring for rivers.
  • Discuss how the review of hydromorphological assessment and monitoring methods can be used to support WFD implementation, especially for the classification of natural and heavily modified water bodies.
  • Exchange on the relevance of hydromorphological assessment methods for biological as-sessments in the context of the WFD.
  • Exchange on key conclusions and recommendations for the report on Hydromorphological Assessment and Monitoring Methodologies for Rivers.
