Twenty-three European countries, including national administrations and other stakeholder groups, were represented.

The first results of REFORM were presented at the workshop, and the invited experts had the opportunity to give feedback. One of the goals was to gather stakeholders’ perspectives on how the management tools and approaches created by the project can contribute to the next round of RBMPs.

Thirteen keynote speakers presented wide-ranging points of view on the topics of river degradation and restoration. Presentations were held by the REFORM partners, the leaders of the WG ECOSTAT, the EEA, DG Environment of the European Commission, the WISER project, and the Life+ RESTORE project, among others.

In the workshop summary report (http://www.reformrivers.eu/events/stakeholder-workshop/documents), specific considerations are reported on what REFORM can do explicitly about the issues raised by stakeholders, giving an indication of the relevant deliverables and the expected time of their publication on the REFORM website (http://www.reformrivers.eu).
