Restoration of estuarine environments, the example of the Seine estuary. Reconciling environmental issues and development challenges.

The meeting was co-organised by ECSA, Grand Port Maritime du Havre (GPMH) and Grand Port Maritime de Rouen (GPMR)

The purpose of this symposium is, firstly, to review Port 2000 environmental measures, and to introduce other ecological restoration measures which have followed for almost 15 years. Feedback from stakeholders will contribute to sharing scientific and technical information gained through the implementation of these actions. Secondly, the symposium will open onto discussing broader issues such as restoring estuarine ecosystems relying on prospective studies in the context of global change and sustainable management methods pertaining to estuaries of international importance.
