The urbem framework for assessing and managing river rehabilitation
The URBEM Framework for Assessing and Managing River Rehabilitation

  • The framework includes

    • Generic approach for assessing and managing river rehabilitation, encompassing the tool for assessing the potential for rehabilitation of an urban watercourse

    • Support guidance

      • Information that is available to inform the decisions taken in the generic approach

    • Decision guidance

      • Tools and assessment procedures that elicit a decision

  • The framework links to all the other outputs of the URBEM project and can be expanded to include non-URBEM tools, methods and information

Which indicators can be used for Rehabilitation

decision-making?

Indicators

of Success

D2.1

  • Recommends suitable success indicators for different objectives

  • Provides information on application

Indicators of success have been developed as a means of evaluating the potential for a rehabilitation project to achieve its objectives and assessing whether the project actually does achieve its objectives.

The generic approach to assessing and managing urban river rehabilitation
The generic approach to assessing and managing urban river rehabilitation

  • The following slides describe the generic approach which includes

    • The steps in the tool for assessing the potential for rehabilitation of an urban watercourse

    • The steps of construction and utilisation in river rehabilitation

  • The generic approach does NOT include the process of developing policy or strategic planning

1a formulating river rehabilitation goals
1a Formulating river rehabilitation goals rehabilitation

  • Set high level goals and more specific objectives

    Example

    Goal: To improve the aesthetics of the river

    Objectives: Increase the natural components of the river, increase the accessibility of the river

  • The goals should be complete so that they include all aspects that might affect the final decision

2. Define spatial extent of assessment

3. Define time-scale for

assessment

4. Determine resources

for assessment

1. Check legislative requirements

2. Determine financial limits

4. Check relevant strategies and plans (including flooding, environmental, landuse planning etc)

5. Identify stakeholder requirements (including public)

6. Identify physical constraints

1. Review information on urban catchment

2. Identify stakeholders

3. Site characterisation: identify issues at catchment, reach and site scales

1b defining method of assessment
1b Defining method of assessment rehabilitation

  • This stage determines how you will measure the objectives and how you will evaluate different options for achieving the objectives

  • The assessment will involve using a multi-criteria decision making method so that options are assessed in terms of how they fulfill the criteria set for achieving the objectives

  • The tool is flexible so the decision maker can select the most appropriate approach for their situation

  • Some MCDM methods require the selection of weights for criteria which takes into account the relative importance the decision maker attaches to the criteria. Guidance is given on how to weight criteria.

2a development of options
2a Development of options rehabilitation

  • Develop options for rehabilitation projects, using the supporting information modules where appropriate

  • Assessing the consequences of options may be based on detailed studies or on past experience

  • Each option should be assessed in terms of the selected criteria. Scores should be checked for consistency between options.

  • This stage involves the construction and realisation of outcomes of the rehabilitation project.

  • It is important to appraise the success of the project during and after implementation so that a strategy can be developed if the project is not achieving its objectives.

Conclusions
Conclusions rehabilitation

  • The framework describes all the outputs from the URBEM project

  • This gives decision makers an overview of the tools and information available to support the river rehabilitation process

  • The implementation of assessing and managing river rehabilitation will involve the input of a wide range of technical specialists from a variety of disciplines

  • Stakeholder engagement and participation (including the public) is an important part of any project
