Spatialisation of wetlands functions for a renewed pilotage of wetlands policies in the Rhone river basin


Most of conservation measures concerning wetlands omit their functional dimensions and focus only on patrimonial areas. A functional approach emphasizes the importance of wetlands with ordinary biodiversity.

Spatialisation of wetland functions helps to define an area of concertation with local stakeholders and to reflect on multi-scaling strategies for wetlands management.

The overall objective is to support the implementation of wetland related policies in the Rhone river basin using a multi-scaling mapping tool.
