Expected results

- Good Ecological Status in river Trönningeån

- P-concentrations in the stream reduced to < 50 µg/l

- Migration possible in the whole stream

- 10 % increase in Salmonid density

- Reduced flood risk in the village of Trönninge by 20 %

- Increased biodiversity in the catchment

- Calculations showing economic cost-effectiveness

- Quantified carbon sequestration in IBZs and LWs

- Improved conditions also in the Natura 2000-river Fylleån

-The concept have been presented at 4 international conferences in the EU and in 1 scientific paper.

- Long-term goal: the concept is implemented throughout EU
