Increase structural diversity on the banks of the Rhine and its branches

Until 2005, measures were implemented along 49 km of river banks (on the left or right bank of the Rhine). The target to increase structural diversity along 400 km of river banks by 2005 was thus not achieved.

By the end of 2012, measures were implemented along some further 56 km of river banks, thus along 105 km in all.

Taking into account the density of uses along the main stream of the Rhine, the target for 2020 - 800 km - seems to be very ambitious and will be difficult to achieve.
