Sediment management in Alpine basins: integrating sediment continuum, risk mitigation and hydropower
“SedAlp focuses on the integrated management of sediment transport in Alpine basins. It is directed towards an effective reduction of sediment-related risk while promoting the enhancement of riverine ecosystems and reducing the impacts of hydropower plants. The SedAlp project includes piloting actions in various representative Alpine river basins of all involved countries and contributes to sediment and wood transfer monitoring in a large set of Alpine catchments, in order to understand spatial and temporal variability of processes.
Based on process understanding, planning, warning and predictive tools will be provided together with sediment and wood management recommendations for hazard mitigation and protection of people. SedAlp aims at developing strategy policy and actions for the improvement of sediment continuity in Alpine river basins.”

Results of a project can be differentiated in outputs, outcomes and impacts of an intervention. Source:OECD Glossary of Key Terms in Evaluation and Results Based Management.
|Protocol for data collection method in sediment transport||Methodology||EN||Civil servants / administration||Three standard protocols on bedload transport, debris flow and wood transport monitoring have been developed. These protocols are intended to describe the used monitoring technics and data processing methods. Furthermore, the protocols work also as guidelines to assist in choosing the appropriate monitoring method for supporting prospective monitoring efforts.|
