About Riparian woodlands
Riparian woodlands are linear nature-based solutions that occupy two ecosystems (water and soil). They enhance the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of a watercourse, with significant implications for biological productivity, including fish production.
The root systems of riparian trees, particularly deep-rooting species manage to slow down the erosion of connected waterbodies. Riparian woodlands play a crucial role in flood control and biodiversity by producing a large amount of food for the bird population.
The figures that speak change!
Restauration of 1 km of Riparian woodland with 45 years can store about 16,217 tones carbon dioxide equivalents CO2e.
Shaded waterways have cooler water from 2 to 5 degrees Celsius than open streams providing better living conditions for the fish population.
