Renaturisation of the Raba river in Małopolskie (Little Poland)

01.09.2011 - 31.12.2016

The Raba Valley in the south of Poland was once an attractive and environmentally valuable recreation area before construction measures in the 1960s and 1970s led to major changes. At the time it was believed that the river could be better controlled by means of canalisation and a system of dams in the upper part of the river. The disadvantages of such interventions are well known today. In the event of floods, there is serious damage to property, fish stocks are decimated and the natural vegetation in the riverbed virtually disappears. Switzerland supports the re-naturisation of two sections of the river and is thus making a contribution to the improvement of the eco-system.
